“You must have noticed an outstanding characteristic of every end that the ego has accepted as its own. When you have achieved it, it has not satisfied you. That is why the ego is forced to shift ceaselessly fro one goal to another, so that you will continue to hope it can yet offer you something.” A Course in Miracles, FIP ed.
When we have too many goals all at once, it is a tipoff that we are struggling to find a place for ourselves in this world that MAY be ego-driven. When we remain often dissatisfied, even when we have achieved goals that we wanted, goals that we attracted, something is wrong. It is wise to ask our heart exactly what IS wrong. We may be following paths that are not meant for us.
When we open to our heart, we are opening to the intuitive side of ourselves. And this intuitive side knows what is best in a way that our mind does not. Listen to the “whispers” that occur; be sure that what is being asked for in a goal is actually something worthy and good.
Don’t let the ego take over. The ego does not mean us well. And with the ego in the ascendancy, we will NEVER remain satisfied with what we achieve.
