BYPASSING EGO RELEASES OUR PASSIONS.
What is the most powerful way to uncover our true hidden needs and passions? The secret is to bypass our Ego & logical mind. Avoiding Ego allows any suppressed needs to finally surface to our conscious awareness. But how do we actually do this?
We bypass Ego through the regular practice of quiet inner contemplation. Or if you prefer, you can use silent prayer, mindfulness or formal meditation. But you need to make the space in your life to actually do this. That’s why it’s important to find 15 minutes of personal quiet time each day, purely for yourself.
RELAX YOUR BODY & SLOW YOUR MIND.
The first stage is to relax your body. Then to slow your mind. Then quietly sit with yourself, without activating your thinking process. Allow any thoughts that arise to naturally fade. Let them pass across your mind. Don’t attach to them or activate them. Just briefly notice them and let them go on their way.
WELCOME YOUR INSIGHTS & INNER KNOWING.
Invite your suppressed needs & passions to rise to the surface. These will come as a heartfelt inner knowing. We don't want any logical, thought-based answers! Instead, welcome any deep insight or inspiration. This may take quite a few sessions of contemplation to fully master.
Quiet contemplation or meditation is a formal way of accessing our inner knowing. But these insights can also surface spontaneously without any formal process. This can occur when we are relaxed and deeply absorbed in beauty, or some creative pursuit. That’s when our Ego is most distracted.
