Ego and the Story of Who We Are

Happy Living!

egoWe often interact with others through old, unconsciously held, and limiting beliefs that generate shame. As we have seen, each starting gate position has a distinct type of core belief that drives their particular dance around the triangle. These core beliefs combine into unconscious stories. We believe these descriptions of ourselves and others without ever questioning them. Left to run unabated in the mind, they generate all sorts of painful feelings, including worthlessness, inadequacy, and defectiveness. We reinforce and perpetuate these beliefs by moving around the triangle.

The ego is that part of us that manufactures and believes these limiting stories. The ego is totally identified with the stories it tells and wants to keep us identified with them as well. The ego uses the triangle to strengthen these painfully, limited identities of who we are.

When I think of our relationship with ego, I am reminded of the…

Disillusioned and Dying of Thirst

Unfathomable Grace

Many of us have experienced buyer’s remorse. We have felt a legitimate internal longing; there was something within us that needed resolution. We were dissatisfied and discontent. We then had something pitched to us — material or immaterial — that promised satisfaction, and after consideration we took the bait. We made the investment and for a brief time we were happy and satisfied; all seemed to be well. However, after the temptation, purchase and immediate rush of satisfaction, we found ourselves struggling even more with listlessness, loneliness, boredom, depression, or self-loathing. This was a crazy cycle, and after hundreds of times around the block, we found life almost not worth living. Thoughts of leaving this place more steadily entered our minds. We were miserable individuals, disillusioned and dying of thirst.

Friends, there has been an endless list of suiters promising satisfaction and contentment to us, and they have all promised much more than they could deliver. Here are some examples that…

Hate to disappoint you, Bobbie but the hero of the bible is Christ and Christ alone.

Are we wrong when we say that Hillsong/Sisterhood followers represent themselves as the center of the (biblical) universe and that all of its redemptive history revolves around them? #selfabsorbedmuch?

Isaiah 48:11 “For My own sake, for My own sake, I will act; For how can My name be profaned? And My glory I will not give to another.”

The scriptures say,

“Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession; He was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was in all His house. For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. For every house…

Singapore warns Japan over Australian conman’s protege

We can safely say that C3 Church leadership (in Sydney, Australia) are incredibly unhappy with the way that Phil Pringle is still misleading his church into believing that Kong Hee is facing unfair persecution by Singaporean authorities. His deliberate silence on Kong Hee is obvious as he attempts to make sure that no one asks about it so he can “progress” his church.

Still Australian media turn a blind eye to Phil Pringle’s involvement in the Singapore scandal.

Recently, a Singaporean diplomat labeled Pringle’s protege as a “disgraceful compatriot” to warn their Japanese friends of Kong’s “criminal offence” of his “misuse of church funds.” His final warning?

“Do not be deceived.”

It’s funny how Jesus says “Do not be deceived” by false prophets in these last days.

By speaking out, Kausikan is demonstrating  love and compassion toward Japan. This man does not want his Japanese friends to be manipulated  by Kong Hee, a fraudulent man who uses Christianity for his…
