“The mind in conflict with itself is dangerous to itself, and of course, by extension, to everyone else in all dimensions. Therefore, indeed, beloved friends, beware of those that come in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Beware of the viciousness of the ego within your own mind.” (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Lesson 22, Page 266)
We live in insanity until we have relinquished the ego. And when we are in real conflict, it is quite likely that either the ego or, later, egoic patterns, are pushing us around.
If in conflict, resolve the difficulty by getting quiet and going within, where God will meet us. He will show us a way to forgive the “ravenous wolves” that other people seem sometimes. And He will show us how to drop our own viciousness, a viciousness that always comes of fear, and fear is always of the ego.
Rest in His mercy and His love.
It will be enough to set us back on the road to sanity, the road to Christ-consciousness.

Thank you for sharing. I like your post. Something to think about. Have a great week.
I like your talks on ego. This is something I bring up in the therapy room all the time with my clients. It is something I work on in myself, all the time as well.
