When we allow our ego to make decisions on the important things we need to make decisions on, we will always get the process wrong. We need to understand the facts the way they really happen, rather than choose to perceive the facts wrongly through other means.
When our ego gets in the way of the facts, we can never bring about the right understanding or resolve, because the ego won’t let us. There will always be a mental block through the ego where we won’t see what is perceived. When we let the ego talk, without questioning ourselves first on what we would otherwise believe to be true, we will never interpret our lives or our decisions in the right way.
What we want or choose to understand through our ego isn’t the same thing as what we need to see and understand by our own thinking. It’s easy for the ego to want to judge another person’s actions or decisions, which doesn’t concur with our own version of events, but choosing denial through the ego can never help us sort the initial problem out.
It doesn’t matter the relationship or what the reasons are by someone else. We must learn to understand and perceive the facts in the way they are presented to us, rather than the way our ego chooses to see those facts. Just because the ego sees facts a certain way, doesn’t mean the ego is right.
We must always think for ourselves independently so that we make the right decisions further down the line, rather than let the ego talk for us and get those decisions wrong.
