Believing your own perception is the objective reality/ truth holds you imprisoned by your own ego.
Our perception is conditioned by our beliefs, experiences and wounds. The way we perceive reality is seen through these programmed filters. I recently read that 98% of our thoughts aren’t our own thoughts! They’re thoughts of the programming of society, family, friends. We have learned and adapted how to live the truth of other people, but not our own. We have forgotten how to be in touch with our own inner truth (not the truth of the mind!) because all of this noise is covering it.
I therefor have learned to not trust what my mind is telling me. I know i can’t rely on my mind. My mind feeds me the same stories, creates the same behavior patterns again and again.
Freedom is the recognition that you are not your mind, your are not your stories. You are that what remains after the vails of the ego mind bullshit are lifted.
But our ego wants us to believe we are that. It categorizes into right and wrong, it of course always being in the right. The problem is: all egos believe they are right in their subjective perception. That’s where the ego mind creates seperation.
So is everyone right or everyone wrong? I think there is actually no such thing as right or wrong. It’s our mind that categorizes something to be right or wrong, according to our unique fingerprint of conditioning. The irony is we create for ourselves pain by labeling and judgeing. We go into resistance or drama.
What if something could just be without label or judgement? What if we could just accept and welcome everything the way it is? That brings piece and freedom to your being because the ego doesn’t have a hold on you anymore with it’s selfcreated misery.
Letting go of the spiritual ego…
Letting go of the thoughts of the mind that think things should be in a certain way, telling and selling you this is your souls purpose, your soul alignment, what you’re supposed to be doing. That’s just more bodymind/ ego/ personality trying to act as soul.
If you can manage to let go of the thoughts telling you how things should be, then you can actually start getting towards where your soul really wants to be and not where your mind thinks your soul should be. You have to get out of your own way and surrender to the guidance and intellegence of life.
This was and still is the hardest lesson for me to learn and embody because the conditioning and programming of doing and achieving was so deeply imprinted. My existence was built apon it, as i’m sure it is with most of the people in our society.
It’s a completly different way of functioning that is foreign to us, yes almost alien. I felt like i was back to being a toddler learning how to crawl, discovering the mysteries of life with a new perception, shifting the assemblege points into a new reality of soulbased living.
