Faeryland, Elven World and the Ego
- T.E. Pelton
Ego is the human characteristic of identity. It is your name, your "beingness", your life choices, your hairdo: everything that is unique to you and is an expression of you.
Mystics often speak about "losing the ego" as a way to find relief of suffering. It is true. You do not feel loss, pain or passion, if you do not exist. ;-)
Except the ego is the entire reason we are here - to feel the pain, the passion, the intensity of living, to relish in all of it. Otherwise, why leave the non-physical land of blissful awareness and enter the third dimensional human body?
The only pain is the inability to remember this is why you came here in the first place ;-)
We all must live with our egos. The beauty of death is no longer having one. The beauty of life is having eyes through which you can see.
Faery land however, the land of the Elven and the Fae, is the world just shy of death, just touching the dawn of life, the in-between point where you can hold out your arms to the infinite and dig your feet into the ground of the Earth.
Relish in who you are - you are divine.
Blessings on this day,
