This Name brings the greatest of all freedoms – the escape from my own ego-based desires, selfish inclinations, and the “me first” mentality that ultimately cause pain in my life. In their place, I gain life’s true and lasting gifts – family, friendship and fulfillment. As I look into my soul, I can feel the sore places where I have been wounded by my ego – worry over what people think about me, needing to be right, angry when things don’t go my way. As I let it go and reach for Light on a higher plane, those places in my soul open up. I am free, my ego diminishes, and I concentrate on what is really important – love, friends, family, spiritual fulfillment, and connection.
