    Hi Family,
    it has been such a long time
    good to be back.

    e(go)motion


    little
    ego
    inflates
    to, balance
    surpassed
    but
    counterforces
    always
    push
    back
    when
    met,
    to go
    forth
    so ego
    finds
    right
    size
    and says
    here
    am
    I.


    Namaste

    And WELCOME BACK!

    Thanks for sharing this piece!

    I truly love how you expressed this! You outlined some "egos" so succinctly but oh-so accurately! :toast:

    However, sometimes, those "little egos" never find their "water level" and stay there....They just keep on "inflating," trying to compensate for what "surpasses."

    But, I truly LOVED your breakdown!

    THIS was a lyrical MASTERPIECE of TRUTH! :bowdown:

    Thank you for the welcome, the words of praise, and for sharing your thoughts with me. I really appreciate it.
    To be honest, I could only outline the ego 'so accurately', because of observations of my own thought and behavior patterns connected to my own 'ego'. But also that of others. There is a lot of ego energy going around in the world, admitted and denied, by male and female. I so agree with you about some little egos never finding the right the size. Here I was just playing with some abstract thought about the ego growing when feeling small and opposed when too big, like a balloon, but always (and this I believe strongly) being pushed or pulled, whether we are aware of that or not, in to balance (by circumstances, people, by energy, by the universe :)), until we become aware. Because there is, to put it in your words, a 'water level', a healthy or constructive state for the 'ego' to be in, a state where you rightfully and forcefully (not agressively) claim your place in the world, your community, the workplace etc. When you can objectively value yourself for what you are worth and thus others. I could go on and on about this subject, as you can see, because it interests me a lot. I saw a topic in another forum today concerning the ego, maybe i should head that way to sharpen the thoughts :D.

    Fabulous observations here! :toast:

    Actually, you made me think of a piece I wrote last year about "egos."

    I think I'll post it....
