Donít try and fight, or resist, or change, or take anything the ego does or says seriously.
Because then you are actually doing exactly what the ego wants, making it real, making it significant, and keeping it around.
The Ego doesnít care if you want to change it, or work at it, or fix it, as long as you are doing something with it. Because then the ego wins, it stays around, because you think it is real.
Would you try and change a dream at night, fix it, or work at making your dream better? No, you would just wake up, and realize the dream was not true.
The ego is the same way.
So the action step, is to simply look at what the ego does, and smile. Donít fix it, donít make it better, donít change it. Just notice what it does, and smile.
Smile knowing, it is not real, it cannot affect you unless you let it by believing in it, and the stories and lies it tells you.
