I have come to the realization that my shadow is sometimes bigger than me especially on a hot sunny day.
The same thing goes with my ego. It grows big or small depending on the situations or circumstances and it takes the form of me or the shadow of myself and not the true essence of who I really Am.
A shadow is after all a shadow and ego is after all an ego no matter how I look at them.
So if you catch me bigger or smaller than who I AM, that probably is my shadow or my ego at its worst.
The point is that most of what we feel and think we conjure up for ourselves in our heads,.. – Anthony de Mello SJ
