Thank you @stevecostello. I appreciate your post and the description you share. I have the same experience- knowing clearly the difference between my ego and conscious awareness.Sometimes, I need to pause and check myself. “Like who is operating the bus here?”
Steve, you captured this difference and partnership so beautifully.
I am currently reading Thich Nhat Hahn’s personal journal from his years 1962- 1966. His writing is so calming, so clear and direct. There is a sense of joy and acceptance for all qualities of life- including the ego, negativities, and challenges inherent in the human experience. In your post I hear the same honoring and acceptance for what is.
