What is Running Your Life? The Ego or Higher Integrated Wisdom

Be Inspired

By Barbara Sherry Rose, PhD

I learned many years ago that the ego is equated with self-hate. It is the ego that causes us to compare ourselves to others only to find ourselves at the lower end of the comparison.

The ego grasps for fame, recognition, superiority, control and superficial attachments that it deems us to need in order to be good enough. And yet, the ego is never satisfied.

It is like trying to fill a bottomless pit. The go traps us into thinking that we have to somehow out-do our so-called competition.

On the other hand, the wisdom of the soul knows we are here to learn and grow. To share and contribute. To make our life matter, no matter how seemingly small our good deeds are, they do matter, and they do make a difference in the lives of others, starting with our own.

It took me a long time to get a grip over my own ego. My perilous mistake was not following the higher guidance I was given to stop all non-essential spending. I had a great weakness where I would simply buy everything I saw that I liked. My ego combined with my weakness under it landed me from living in an exclusive country club penthouse to my car for eight months. It was a brutal lesson that I had to learn, and unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way.

However, that vastly crucial lesson has now saved me for the rest of my life. So now I want to share some tips with you to help you know when it is ego or your higher integrated wisdom that is running your life.


  • What you have is never enough.
  • No matter how hard you work you slave drive yourself without giving yourself time to rest and restore.
  • You are seeking approval and validation from others.
  • You are grasping for fame or recognition in order to feel worthy.
  • You are spending unnecessarily on items you simply do not need.
  • You compare yourself to others and still don’t feel good enough.
  • You want more, more, and more, and may even put yourself into debt acquiring material possessions.
  • You judge yourself harshly.
  • You tolerate abuse and try to change or turn the other person around.
  • You never feel truly fulfilled from within.


  • You feel gratitude for everything you have.
  • You work and create in a balanced manner and always give yourself plenty of time to rest and restore yourself.
  • You feel good enough exactly as you are right now from within.
  • You seek to be of the highest service to our world from the bottom of your heart.
  • Your contributions are created to make a true difference for others and you feel inspired, and excited about each creation you make.
  • You buy only what you truly need and never feel that you have to keep up with, or impress others.
  • When you view others you seek to find a positive way to collaborate together.
  • You only tell yourself what is good about you and NEVER put yourself down.
  • At the first sign of abuse you leave skid marks. Self-love has a zero tolerance policy for abuse.
  • You feel fulfilled from within by following through on what you feel passionate and excited about. You feel equal to the rest of the human race – because you really are.

Being Enough NOW Book Excerpt


New You

The “new you” I speak about is actually the real you
underneath all of the negative labels and barriers you
have set up in your mind.

It’s time you started to feel like the person you really
are. It’s time you made a simple decision based on
your choice as to how you would prefer to feel about
yourself and view yourself.

Anything that goes against your preference can
now be labeled a lie. Any statement you make to and
about yourself has to match your preference.

The Key

The key here is in first knowing what you prefer.
How do you prefer to feel about yourself? I’m sure
you can answer something along the lines of, “A lot
better than I do now!”

You’re not the only one. I was faced with this same
challenge, and I know if I was able to transform a lifetime
of not feeling good enough, then anyone with a
conscious mind can do so as well.

Take a moment and consider all of the things in
your life that are not how you would prefer them to

Now, create a mental picture of how you prefer
your life to be.

Go ahead, you can do this right now; imagine
how you would love to feel about yourself. Picture
how you would love to be in all areas of your life.
Picture how you would like to experience yourself as
the best version of you that you can imagine.

Do you know what? That positive picture is actually
the real you temporarily buried beneath a lot of
false beliefs. The only way you can transform the false
beliefs is by making a decision to focus on what you
would prefer to feel, think, and experience.
We cannot transform ourselves and bring out the
best we have inside of us if all we focus on is that
which we can see.

You have to make a choice. This choice will determine
your ability to feel good about yourself now
regardless of external circumstances or choices you’ve
made that have kept you in misery based on your
views and perceptions.

Shopping for Self Esteem

did anyone ever tell you Did anyone ever tell you..
Something kind about you
Such as how you appear to them
Or a talent you have?
Did Anyone Ever Say Something Nice to You?
Did you ever think their compliment was a lie?
So if I tell you something wonderful
That I observe about you,
Do you think I would lie?
If you have ever received a compliment,
Or if you ever do,
The greatest thing to say is..
“Thank You.”
Then, set out to discover the good,
The genuine precious qualities you actually have.
They are there.
Did anyone ever tell you where to look for them?
In your heart. That’s where all of your worth And goodness exists –
And no one can ever take that away from you.
They don’t sell self esteem in Bloomingdale’s or Harrods’
Target and Wal-Mart don’t carry it either.
Did anyone ever tell you..
You can buy self esteem in the beauty salon?
They lied.
It’s all inside – no matter how nice the outside appears,
All of your worth will eternally exist in your heart.
