Our ego needs acknowledgement and respect. We all know the desire to be acknowledged for accomplishing something or for being recognized for doing a job well. A healthy ego asks for, and expects, recognition when it is due. And, the darker side of that desire is pretending to be someone important or demanding to be special even at the expense of other people.
But our hearts yearn to be seen in a different way. We need someone to truly see who we are, what we are passionate about, and the things that light us up from inside.
This isn’t a peripheral need but something deep at our core. Because when we are seen for how and what we love by another, we are connecting through love, to the Universal One. It is a moment of both recognition and remembering. We recognize the love that flows through another and remember that is who we are ourselves.
