On September 4th, 2009, Equinox was asked:
When I am talking to myself, who am I talking to?
EQ: Depends. Sometimes thee are talking to an extension of thy own ego. Within every human being there is, it is almost like a Being, but it isn't, that attempts to control it's environment. This is what we call thy Ego. And often, when thee are talking, this is it replying. On a very, very rare occasion, unfortunately for humanity, it is not striven to do, on very rare occasions thee are actually communicating with thy Soul. In other times thee are communicating with they Guides or what thee could call thy Highest Self and Other. It is learning to decipher what is what that helps thee. But we can truly tell thee that often when thee are listening to thy Ego, there will be in some way, power and control conveyed. Either through fear or often degrading thoughts. Is it not so that many entities often have thoughts of degradation? "What makes thee think that thee can do that?" "Why dost thou thee think thee deserve it?" Have thee not thought these thoughts? Often this is the Ego. For it is the Ego's desire to hold the control. When thee understand how powerful thy Soul is and thee pierce the illusion, the Ego loses control and it begins to fight harder. So it is the loudest voice.
Guest: I was remembering an incident quite a while ago, where I woke up sort of, in the middle of the night, and it was this strange sort of, like I was awake, like I was observing my own brain going, I don't know what it was doing, dreaming or thinking or whatever. It was like I was detached observing my own mind thinking it was just very strange. I don't know what parts were what...
EQ: It was the Soul observing the Ego. But earlier Mark had said something about a mental disorder?
EQ: And there are more than that but there are instances where disincarnate Souls actually are allowed to co-exist in the body with others.
Guest: It seems to cause the body great pain.
EQ: It does, because how would thee like to live in the middle of Congress? Because often it is entities that do not co-exist well together and again it is Ego. It isn't the Soul. It is the Ego's that have remained. And each want the power and control. So it does cause much pain.
Guest: Is there any way to control the Ego?
EQ: That's what thee are here in physical to learn to strive to do. That is why we say it is important to realize that thee are living an illusion. That illusion is produced by the Ego. When thee get out of the illusion, in many philosophies this is called "Living in a Non-Attachment." That is being out of the Ego because the Soul has no attachments.
Guest: So it is Transcending the Ego, not directed by the Ego.
EQ: Exactly. It is recognizing the Ego and then making choice.
Guest: As to how much power the Ego has over you and your thought and actions.
EQ: Exactly that just keeps the illusion. Many of thee spend more time in this Ego than anything else, and we can describe what it is like. How many of thee spend time worrying about what could happen? Is that not an illusion? It does not exist anywhere but here (tapping the head). Yes, it is happening a lot now.
Guest: It's Murphy's Law.
EQ: Only if thee believe it is.
Guest: So the most important thing is remaining "Soulful".
EQ: That is good.
Guest: We were talking one time, influence other people have over you as far as not totally being able...
EQ: We believe thee are talking about Planetary Karma?
Guest: Well, as far as worrying about the future, if you're working at a certain place, and you know the people you work with, and you have seen behavior from the past that has affected you from everybody, like how your boss is, so you worry "oh he may have another fit, or he may be mean to me again".
EQ: And we would say unto thee if thee are worrying about "what could be" thee are not living in the "what is," and it does no good to worry about "what could be" because thee cannot do anything about it anyway. Thee cannot control how thy boss acts. Worrying about it is not going to create control. The only thing thee can control at any moment is how thee react to that and that is from coming outside of Ego. The Ego will always react defensively.
Guest: About creating your reality? How does that fit into the Ego manifesting...
EQ: How many times have thee done everything right in thy manifestation process and everything goes wrong? Dost thou have any clue why? Because the Ego loses control the more thee understand how powerful thee are. Right? When thee begin to feel thy power often, is when the Ego begins to fight the hardest. This should make thee feel wondrously happy for this proves thee are going somewhere. But instead it does the opposite. And the Ego wins. Because then thee begin to doubt what thee are doing, Thee may even doubt they thy belief systems, and all that is happening is that thy Ego is looking deep, deep into thy fears and bringing them back so that thee will perceive a failure. Which thee may never have failed, thee may just not be at the winning yet. But if thee perceive the failure then thee can never win.
Guest: If we start meditating and we feel....
EQ: If thee are doing it right the Ego us put aside and thee are merged with the Soul.
