A little visual just went through my mind. Let me share that with you.In my mind I saw a doorway. First my ego grabbed the handle and said "I will open this for you."
Then my insecurities placed their hand upon egos and said, "No, I will open it for you." Then life teachings placed its hands upon the other two and said, "No...I will be the one to open the door for you."
The struggle had begun. The door did not budge...it could not open. Finally exhausted from the struggle ego, insecurities and teachings dropped their hands away from the knob. It was then the door opened allowing me to enter without hesitation.
