Separate ego from the true self. When I sit quietly I begin to notice my thoughts forming. I can also notice how I can get ‘lost in thought’, by getting lost in an image of an idea, a memory or desire. When this happens I begin to close myself around and trap myself within the thought or image. This is how ego operates, by having me become attached to my thoughts and image as IF they were me. When I begin to identify with my thought, my idea, my desire I know that ego has me. Today let me keep my true self free from ego.
