I have become keenly aware lately, the pang of my ego and its need for agreement. It is as if my ego is peeling away from my spirit that allows us to strongly disagree, believe very differently, and have extremely different core values.
I notice my throat tighten, my eyes roll, and my heart close when I disagree with you about things that matter to me.
I’m not there yet. Right now I am just noticing the misery I create for myself when I need you to agree with me. I notice I withdraw the energy of love from you and from myself. I close off from connection and create separation from you, and even more importantly, I separate from myself.
This is not the person I desire to be.
Naming and noticing help me bring back my power and release this need. And, I pretty much have to release that need over and over and over. And the more I love you, the more I have to release my attachment to our agreement.
Sometimes the work is deeply uncomfortable.
I am the other you.
