So this is weird. I’m doing 2 blog posts in a day which is unheard of.
Recently I feel like my old ego is back. The one that is very careful about things and thinks a little bit too much sometimes.
And guess what? I’m not even mad about it. I’m actually fucking excited to have this little guy under my guidance. I’m finally at peace with him and I think we can do some cool shit together especially given all the skills he has for solving problems and being resourceful as fuck.
Did I just find a way to hack ego?
Just as a backstory, a week ago I fucking fell and I was so chill with my knees being busted open. After this happened, I was so very careful about walking and doing stuff in general to not get hurt since I can’t do fun stuff without full use of my lower body.
In retrospect, I feel like me hurting myself after not hurting myself in a long time is a superb lesson in coming in peace with my ego. All this time I thought the ego was the enemy and that I had to keep it away. It turns out he’s just here to keep me alive and me falling made me very careful which I was before I had my “spiritual awakening.”
This also reminds me of a quote by Alan Watts:
“The freeing sensation of laughter. If you can find a situation humorous then suddenly it becomes much less severe” – Alan Watts
So that’s my lesson for the day. Everything’s a fucking lesson 😎
