What if the "ego" is just acquired social conditioning, domestication, that is held in place through energetic blocks? Ego = energy blocks. Ego = entangled energy that is ready to be dissolved and healed?
Guilt is a place where we are entangled with another energy.
We feel guilty because we behaved in a way in which we perceive that we harmed another.
In truth, we can only ever harm another when *they* hold beliefs that go against their wholeness. So, our behavior shows them places where they hold their own wounds. (And they can only ever harm us when we hold beliefs and energetic blocks that go against our wholeness.)
We only, ever, take the behavior of another personally when we believe that their behavior means something that goes against our wholeness. (Otherwise, we see clearly that their behavior is only a reflection of whatever is going on within themselves.)
When we feel guilty for our behavior, and for "harming," another, there is simply energy to dissolve there.
There's an opportunity to de-personalize the behavior by seeing it simply as energy.
It is energy calling itself back to life.
When we see the ego as part of us, we hold our behavior as personal, part of us, that we have it and that it's wrong.
What if, instead, we see our pain as simply a place where we hold energy that is ready to be dissolved? This depersonalizes the cause, the behavior, all of it - it's simply energy that is ready to be dissolved.
