“You must learn to get in touch with the innermost essence of your being. This true essence is beyond the ego. It is fearless; it is free; it is immune to criticism; it does not fear any challenge. It is beneath no one, superior to no one, and full of magic, mystery, and enchantment.”-Deepak Chopra
I’ve learned through trial and error that I have to live from the “I am” perspective. In order to do that I had to review my life and all the resentments that held me down. Reviewing my life was a big step for me. In the beginning, I thought I had to think of all the people, organization and fears that did me wrong. However, this review became the “wakeup call” that made me realize I needed to see my side of the story; ego vs. essence step as I like to call it. Did I have these resentments because I acted out of my own conditioned self for my own personal needs (ego)? Or did I have these resentments by interacting with others by listening, empathizing and responding to their needs/understandings (essence)? My resentments were always based off my own needs/ego.
I saw that I was missing out on my abundance after realizing that I was living by my ego and not my essence. I just didn’t see all that I had and I certainly wasn’t enjoying it. Well, after reviewing and working through my resentments, I saw my abundance for the first time in many years. You know what my abundance is? My abundance is love. Love of my family, friends and experiences. I now embody that abundance and enjoy it every day.
