Conscious awareness and the ego are very clear for me, like two friends, one who is hectic and the other is very calm and peaceful. The hectic ego can be told, ‘hang on a minute, that needs some thought,’ or, ‘no, that’s not right.’ Sometimes it will respond with a sulk but it can be managed.
The calm and peaceful consciousness has a wonderful presence which washes through me like perfectly warmed water accompanied by clear mountain air. It has no comparison, it is unique and I recognize it always (not in the earlier segments of this life). It instinctively manages the ego yet the two are friends.
Peace, Love & Happiness, Steve C
