Someone was recently blogging about the paradox in the program and the steps. One that occurs to me this morning is that the more awareness and acceptance I have about myself, the more easily that I can let it (ego) go. So, I have to bring it close to release it.
If I can see my defects, great.
If I can see my defects as part of my liquid landscape, good to know about but not part of my hardwiring, greater.
If I can see the defects as part of a story acted out by ego, not the reality of my relationship with a higher power, better yet.
