The ego has a spotlight and a shadow.
Having a dominant ego isn’t just about being arrogant
or thinking we’re the the best thing in the Universe.
It also can look like thinking we’re the worst thing.
Both are a form of self-obsession or self-fixation—
inflating our individual identity far beyond the Truth.
Both cause us suffering.
A balanced ego knows it’s place in The Family of Things
that our individual expression is a part of a greater whole.
We cannot be “the best” or “the worst” because we’re part of everything.
The whole Divine gamut.
Self-hatred, self-neglect, or self-minimizing serves no one.
To deny ourselves is to deny the Highest Good of all.
To honor ourselves and our needs is to honor the Truth
that we are exactly how we are meant to be and that
our beauty and our gifts+talents are not ours to take credit for.
But they are ours to take ownership of and responsibility for.
We are important—just like everyone else.
We are healing and growing—just like everyone else.
Our needs are not too much—just like everyone else.
And especially—we are worthy of love.
Just like every incredible blessed being.
Let yourself be you.
With humbled pride.
The rest will fall into place.
Sending Light to all beings 🌻 Danielle
