BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, January 20th, 2011 by John Randolph Price in LIVING A LIFE OF JOY

“How do we break the grip of the ego?…Let’s watch our feelings of self-importance and not forget how dangerous a minefield arrogance, pride, and swagger can be. Also, a greater understanding that all good things are possible may depress us at first because such things are not happening in our lives. This could throw us into the victim role.

Victim can be an interesting character to play. Posture: sagging shoulders. Facial expression: grim. Voice: whiny. Words from script with camera close up: “I don’t deserve this; why can’t good things happen to me?’  Ego gets credit for fine direction. Whenever self-importance and depression weigh in, take control. Meditate on who and what you are and let the light dispel the shadows.”
