Understanding the Heavenly Ego
We all have egos. Even nations have big egos. Just a three letter word but it can cause so much anger, pride, vanity, conceit and pompousness. Remember how in our 20s this big monster Ego starts vacillating between inferior ego (lack of self confidence) and superior ego (aggressiveness)? Well, there is another type of ego which CLI calls heavenly ego (wise actions).
In Inferior ego state we are easily swayed, can be bullied, and have low faith in self and others. In Superior ego, we can be disrespectful, unkind, intolerant and uncaring. Heavenly ego is the path of transformation where we are respectful, devoted, nonjudgmental, detached, patient and joyful. Sounds like a great place to visit, right?! As part of CLI’s Personal and Professional Development Program, participants discover how to self-coach and coach others to magically reduce the Inferior and Superior Egos. These tools are very useful at home and work when we wish to build stronger relationships.
What we have noticed is that it is both the Inferior and Superior egos which prevent us from achieving what we truly wish to achieve. The doors to high achievement are locked! However, by unlocking that door to personal power, wow, so many great things can happen in our world. Try it.
