I do not need to diminish or attack anyone else’s experience to speak my truth. It is possible more than one perception or way of seeing can be true. I practice letting go of my need to be understood, or even heard.

How others perceive what they know of me or if they “believe in” me is of little consequence. In fact, the “I” that is perceived does not even exist. We are all in turns mirroring and projecting ourselves onto everything and everyone.

I witness my petulant ego scrambling to be “right”, and laugh. I pat it on the head, offering a lollipop as I buckle it in to the passenger’s seat. Such a cranky toddler...ego!
