The Key to Accomplishing Goals: Moving from Ego to Spirit


The Key to Accomplishing Goals: Moving from Ego to Spirit.

“Have you ever had a moment like that? When the end of something in your life felt like the end of your life?”

In a way it is the end of your life…as you knew it in the past…and the beginning of your yet to be determined future life.   I know this because I have had several such a moments over the course of my life.  The circumstances and degree of difficulty have been different but the theme the same – the end of something very important to me, literally and figuratively.  Regardless of whether it was or , each end required grieving the loss of  something. And whether it be physically tangible material possessions, places, people or emotionally ethereal familiarity, friendships, family and love that are gone, paradoxically space is opened up for new things and experiences that change and shift our perspectives and teach us about what’s really important.

For me this was the ‘Ah-Ha’ of how much of what I did, my identity, who I was, was wrapped around my ego and its need for external approval.  Bringing this into consciousness, into the light, revealing it to be the smoke and mirror illusion it was.  Once opened, the Pandora’s box of wonderous yet potentially painful gifts cannot be put back. So began my long and extremely difficult task of removing ego’s type grasp, surrendering to the brilliance and loving guidance of my spirit.  Ahh…free at last!

The question is how to make the shift from ego driven to spirit guided?   I could go into detail of the way I did it, but that is my journey. It is different for everyone.  I can can say it is definitely not easy.  It requires great courage, resilience, patience, forgiveness, faith and love, more than you ever could imagine, over and over again.  Its like anything in life…if you want it enough, you have it in you to make it happen. With a little help from your friends of course – here on earth and above.  Just sayin. 🙂
