Your ego is the part of you that identifies with thoughts and things. While necessary, it’s not the real you. You are the witnessing consciousness residing in the background. By consciously watching the complex mix of constantly changing¬†thoughts and emotions and identifying with the part that’s watching, you can transcend the ego. With practice, this witnessing¬†presence that peacefully enjoys the play of life, moves forward in your awareness and gently nudges the ego, with all it’s complicated strategies and suffering, into the background where it belongs. This allows you to enjoy…
The play of life.
