The Excellence of Bodhichitta

large

The ego has done some very cruel things. My ego has reacted with anger, and fear at times, to your ego. These egos believe they are right and have justified their actions in the name of “rightness”. Egos harm. They make others wrong. I am learning to forgive my ego for the harm it has caused. I have already forgiven your ego. I forgive you. I wish you well.

Ego Expectations

IMG_3961

The higher the expectations, the lower the serenity level. When the ego thinks they should – I should – it should – be this way….

All the shoulding turns into a negative pile of steamy shit – good for attracting more negative shit – and buzzing egos full of shit – all leaving the shitty pile – with shit to spread around.

Let go of those shoulds in life – see what is – a beautiful garden comes into focus – all varieties of beauty are attracted to this place – joy blossoms and spreads to others.
