“You can always find words to justify your position, be they from a religious book, a spiritual book, a political book, a magazine, or your Internet. When the ego has something to defend, it will find that perfect defense.
Tune in to your stomach and heart area. What do they have to say? Is there clenching as you write or speak your defense? Then ego is at work, tensing in anticipation of a return attack. Is there softness and total relaxation?
Then the higher self knows it cannot be harmed no matter what comes back in return. Do the body test often, for it is the autonomic system that will save you from being held prisoner to ego’s patterns. If you want to be in-formed by Higher Consciousness, let down your guard and be willing to see in new ways.”
