Lost in Thought.....

EGO CAN PAVE OUR WAY TO SUCCESS AND THEN GET IN THE WAY OF IT.

THE BIGGER YOUR HEAD – THE SMALLER THE WORLD. PATHETICALLY, THE VIEW IS LIMITED TO ONLY YOURSELF AND IT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN EGO TAKES OVER, IT GIVES US NO PLACE TO GO. WHEN FRUSTRATION IS SO GREAT AND OVERWHELMS EVERYTHING YOU DO, NO LONGER DOES IT GO YOUR WAY – ONLY THEN WE’RE FORCED TO SEEK A PLACE THAT MAKES US FEEL SMALL AND THE WORLD BIGGER. WE NEED TO GET GROUNDED AND GET OUR ASSES BACK ON TRACK.

ESCAPING TO A REMOTE ISLAND CAN REMOVE YOU FROM WHAT YOUR JADED SELF HAS SEEN BEFORE. IF YOU STAND UNDER THE EIFFEL TOWER AND GAZE UPWARD, YOU’LL REALISE JUST HOW TINY YOU REALLY ARE. STAND ON THE EDGE OF A CLIFF OVER LOOKING THE JAGGED SHORE LINE OF THE 12 APOSTLES AND ONLY THEN YOU MIGHT UNDERSTAND WE OCCUPY SUCH A SMALL SPACE ON THIS EXPANSIVE EARTH. THE OCEAN COVERS 224 MILLION SQ. MILES OF THE EARTH’S SURFACE SO HOW DID WE EVER CONCLUDE WE’RE BIGGER THAN THAT?

HAVE YOU LOST SIGHT OF THE BIGGER PICTURE? I CERTAINLY HAVE, I ROAM AROUND THIS WORLD DIRECTED BY A TOUR SCHEDULE YET LACK DIRECTION IN MY OWN LIFE. WHERE THE HELL DO I WANT TO GO? I HAVEN’T A CLUE.

IF ALL OF US ARE CAPABLE OF GROWING GREAT EGOS, IT PROBABLY MEANS WE’VE A GOOD CAREER, EXCITING LIFESTYLE AND HAVE OPPORTUNITIES THAT MOST OTHERS DO NOT HAVE ALL ACCESS. GRACED WITH A DASH OF LUCK AND POUNDS OF POSSIBILITIES, IT’S NO WONDER OUR HEADS GET SO BIG BECAUSE WE’RE CONFIDENT AND WANT EVERY THING THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER. WE BELIEVE WE’RE ENTITLED AND UNTIL OUR EGO MADE US MOVE OUT – WE HAD IT.

EGO EXHAUSTS US BY MAKING US COMPARE, STEP UP, MOVE FORWARD; WE’RE FOREVER IN MOTION, RELENTLESS. YET, DESPITE ALL EFFORTS OUR EGO IS RARELY SATISFIED.

WE NEED TO STAND STILL, TAKE A BREAK FROM CONTINUALLY TRYING TO TOP OURSELVES WITH A BETTER GIG, MAKING MORE MONEY AND ATTEMPTING TO RE-CREATE THE FEELING OF FALLING IN LOVE OVER AND OVER.

SOMETIMES WE JUST CAN’T GO ANY HIGHER, GO ANY FURTHER, NOR STAND ANY TALLER ON THE PEDESTAL. HOW ABOUT WE CLIMB DOWN FROM OUR SELF-MADE ALTER AND TAKE THE NIGHT OFF?
