Self Control, Self Reflection and Self deception detection. Only if we had a built-in detector that could warn us when we are about to lose control or when we are deceiving ourselves… Oh wait we do, we just tend to ignore it. Some call it a conscience others call it a moral thermometer or compass. It’s that little voice that most of us tend to ignore or act as if it doesn’t exist so we can do things that we think will get us that temporary pleasure or emotional high. It’s the voice within trying to warn us of the consequences of our actions and the damage it may cause.
It seems our ego likes to block out, gag and tie up or conscience so it can fill itself up and be big. Its selfish nature makes the ego a hard thing to tame and control. The ego is only out for itself and is one of the biggest barriers to finding contentment and happiness in life. The Ego tries hard to convince us we are totally individual and separate therefore the whole is unimportant and the self is all that exists and matters. But that little voice within is persistent and will continually remind us of our connection with all other living things and that we are not the center of all existence. We are but one cog in the machine works of all that is and a contributor to all that shall eventually come. Our words, thought and actions be they small or great will play a part in what we call the present which will help set the course of the future.
Deflate that Ego and listen well to that little voice we all call a conscience.
