I was listening to a podcast the other day and heard someone comment that “GOD speaks to us through one another”. I agree. On many occasions GOD has offered me the right words to speak when they are needed or they are spoken to me through someone else at exactly the right time. However, when I’m not in a “fit condition” mentally, spiritually and emotionally there is another force that just wants to be in charge of everything. That force is EGO. When I’m into EGO I’m unable to work well with GOD.
At some time along the way someone said GOD is an acronym for Good Orderly Direction while EGO is Easing God Out. I’ve always liked that. It makes sense to me that putting EGO before GOD blocks, blurs and distorts all matters of Spirit and defeats the true self. My belief that GOD resides within me gives me the power to recognize EGO problems. Refusing that recognition is a denial of what GOD needs done. Being aware of how EGO affects my whole being… my Good Orderly Direction… keeps me more comfortable with the “shedding process” and the new aspects of self that continue to emerge.
