Me or We? Seperation or Unity? Anger or Happines? Ego or Soul? You have the power. What do you choose? A piece about the inner struggle of choosing between your ego and your soul.
I would like to stress the fact that I do not believe our ego is a negative factor per sé. Ego is the part of us we actually need, in order so survive as species and for many other reasons aswell. But in our current society, the role of the ego has gotten too big. We so often act from a ego-based belief system, letting it control us. This is where the ego becomes a negative factor. EGO SHOULD BE SERVING US, NOT CONTROLING US. We too often forget that in the end, WE have the power to choose what we want to believe and how we want to act towards circumstances in life. This is not easy!! But it is possible and it starts with being AWARE of it and understanding what it all means. This is the message I want to spread and that is why I chose to interpret the ego as the negative factor for the making of this concept video.
Be aware. You choose.
