The ego operates from a place of fear:
the heart works from a place of love.
The ego is obsessed with lack, comparisons, winning, competition, and security;
the heart wants to comfort, to share, to help, to include.
Ego vs Heart
Ego: I close my eyes to your suffering so that I don’t get hurt.
Heart: I not only witness your suffering, but I bear it with you.
Ego: I focus on how different you are instead of seeing how much we are alike.
Heart: I will walk with you.
Ego: I am number one.
Heart: I am here to serve.
Ego: There is not enough to go around.
Heart: I have so much please help yourself.
Ego: I thrive on your failure.
Heart: I celebrate your success.
Ego: I push fear away by using denial and distancing myself from it.
Heart: I’m scared too but I won’t desert you. we’ll do it together
Ego: I ignore the consequences my actions have on others and the planet.
Heart: I am you, you are me, we are one.
