The problem of being stuck in self was the root of all my problems.
When I all I think about is how I am going to manage in this world, how I am going to have money, security, a career, friends, lovers, having fun, safety and everything else I can obsess about, the result is misery.
For me everything goes back to the relationship I have with my creator. If I trust this thing, if I believe it is always by my side, guiding and protecting me, then I have much less fear about life and my place in it.
I have surrendered to the fact that I am here to do the will of my creator first and not my own.
That doesn’t mean I don’t get to have an amazing life. In fact the more I put others first and serve my creator and humanity, the more my life steadily improves.
It sometimes feels like getting out of self is against my natural inclination. However it is only my ego that fights it, not the ultimate nature of my being.
I just continually do all I can to keep the gift of my awakening alive and take actions to not slip backwards into unconsciousness.
It works, it really does.
