Ego.

I recently learned that love and ego can’t coexist. Ego is the death of love, and love should be the death of ego. They are separate and apart. The best part of falling in love is the fall. In order to fall, one must trust. In order to trust, one must lean in. Leaning in is faith actualized. I’ve always been afraid of leaning in because I’ve always been afraid of falling. My fear of falling has prevented me from actually standing. I thought I stood. I didn’t. Family, I don’t know how many days I have ahead of me. With the remaining days that I have left, I desire to live in the ambiance of love without the confines or restraint of my ego. You’ve read my stuff, so you know that I’m guarded. Guards are a necessity at prisons. Guides are a necessity at journeys. This is my journey. Therefore, I have fired my guard. I hired a guide. As I let go of Summer, I embrace Fall. As the leaves fall, so do my fears. I can no longer live in isolation with the expectation of fullness. I haven’t written in a while because I’ve been lost for words. I’ve been lost for words because I’m lost for expectations. I never expected this. Who knew that I, too, have a reflection. Who knew? I recently learned that love and ego can’t coexist. Love coexists with humility. Love coexists with patience. Love coexists with forgiveness. I have received that which I don’t believe I deserve. I am going to kill my ego in order to give birth to Love. Until then, I’ll keep my computer open. I truly believe that the best is yet to come. Love and ego can’t coexist. Damn……Patrick

As always, this week, please do something for someone other than yourself. If you make it to where you’re going, please don’t forget to leave a map for the rest of us. Always Choose Love Because Love Changes Everything……
