Ok this is a big one it is vitally impossible not have a material thing’s obsession in this life but this feeds your ego your ego is your nemesis and unbalance your spirituality. I have a saying if you can’t take it with you to the next level it’s not really worth having it just material and have no real value to your life. Want and a constant need for New stuff is no good for your soul and the balance of life I’m not saying give up all your belongings and live in a field but you would feel a big weight lifted .
“The ego says, once everything falls into place I will find peace. The soul says, once I find peace everything will fall into place”- Unknown.
“Being right is identification with a mental position – a perspective, an opinion, a judgement, a story….The ego loves to make wrong in order to be right. In other words: you need to make others wrong in order to get a stronger sense of who you are. Being right places you in a position of imagined moral superiority.”- Tolle
“A flower or bird could show you the way back to God, to the Source of yourself. When you look at it or hold it and let it be without imposing a word or mental label on it a sense of awe, of wonder, arises within you. It’s essence silently communicates itself to you and reflects your own essence back to you.”- Tolle
The dictionary defines ego as “a persons sense of self-esteem or self-importance” and is often used to describe someone who is showing off or “up themselves”. But really, the ego is much more than that and can be described as the antagonist to consciousness.
As you can see ego has no part in human life feed your soul and grow in your true self peace .
Once you can understand this the better you will start feeling. Thing’s won’t give you happiness only love for others will truely make a difference and grow your soul. “Happiness is a state of being, not a state of having.”
