During a recent coaching session, the student was giving the mind1 all the credit for her issues: fear of making a mistake, fear of doing anything new, fear of trusting anyone or anything, etc.
I was listening, and the more she said the clearer it became to me, that she is actually talking about the Ego that uses the Mind as its spokesperson.
My brother is dealing with health problems and he is guided by medicine people, aka doctors. He is getting worse and he is getting more and more sure what he is supposed to do, how he is supposed to eat, how it is… He has the best teachers: doctors.
Medical doctors, organized religion, and Ego have a lot in common.
