“One of man's important mistakes, one which must be remembered, is his illusion in regard to his I. Man such as we know him, the 'man-machine,' the man who cannot 'do,' and with whom and through whom everything 'happens,' cannot have a permanent and single I. His I changes as quickly as his thoughts, feelings and moods, and he makes a profound mistake in considering himself always one and the same person; in reality, he is always a different person, not the one he was a moment ago.” -- G. I. Gurdjieff
The Universe is always in constant flux and so are we.
Anxiety/Stress is a result of trying to cling to ONE constant/safe harbor…which does not exist!
The ‘Persona/Ego’ shell created by our Primary/Protector/Controller Selves controls our behaviour and keeps on changing every split of a second to protect the vulnerable “Inner Child” from pain and suffering.
The so-called pain & suffering is the result of our un-acceptance of our own disowned and repressed ‘shadow’.
Our disowned selves/shadow are our non-acceptance, hatred, despise, resentment, triggers or all of the above.
Unless I detach my ‘Aware Ego’ from my Primary/Protector/Controller Selves, how is it possible to hear, understand, acknowledge, validate, accept, embrace and honour my 'shadow'?
Shadow is not demonic …it has its unique purpose and input towards our ascension.
It needs our nurturing, healing and unconditional loving acceptance.
This is moving towards becoming WHOLE.
*Aware Ego - The Aware Ego is the ability to stand between opposite selves, experiencing and understanding both sides, yet not identifying with either.
