your SELF is already mastered… there’s nothing to do with it but be it. it’s always ego, and the instant payoff it wants fulfilled, that takes us off on other journeys/experiences.
the ‘little you’ gets something that it wants, from any choices you make, that you regret later. somehow, whatever suffering you feel from any SELF-sabotaging choices is satisfying to the little you on some level.
only thing that works for me is remembering how i felt after i made a choice in the past. then i decide what consequences of my actions i’m ok with. sometimes, i make choices that serve my SELF and sometimes i don’t. why to beat myself up in my mind about it, too? …i already got the consequences. it won’t change what’s past.
every moment is a new opportunity. forget the sweeping judgements … acknowledge every single victorious moment you can.
remember how you feel in your body when you do something that works for it.
as long as we have a mind, battle with the ego to keep it as a servant will be there. you know this.
