Are You Living From Ego or Your Soul?
In my last podcast we talked about being able to decipher when your ego is talking to you versus when the soul is whispering to you. If you haven’t yet listened to that podcast, you can do so HERE. In this podcast we continue this journey and look at what happens when we meet someone new. Do you approach them from your ego or your soul? What are some of the questions we ask that clearly show that we’re coming from ego?
Over the years I have learned that for the most part we approach people from the place of ego. Ego has the need to put on a façade and dance a charade, all in an effort to blow itself up and make itself look better. Sadly, when we approach new relationships from the basis, the friendship or relationship rarely has a chance to be sustained over the long haul.
The soul, however, has no need to do that. In fact, the soul loves transparency and it skips right over those ego questions and gets real. Being vulnerable and transparent right from the get-go is quite frightening to the ego, which is why most people just can’t go there. However, friendships that start on this basis have a much better chance of turning into long term relationships that will stand the test of time.
