The most foundational co-creative partnership of our lives is between the two fundamental aspects of our being: soul and ego.
Soul is the aspect of us that is timeless. It lives both in the realm of consciousness and within our physical bodies. It is the bridge between the seen and unseen worlds. Ego encompasses everything about us that is connected to the physical, three-dimensional world–intellect, personality, skills. It lives in the body.
Soul is essence; ego is form. Soul is intuitive; ego is analytical. Soul longs to learn, grow, and evolve; ego can be protective—it wants the safety of predictable outcomes.
Occasional conflict between the two is normal; at the more primal levels of our existence, they have different agendas. However, as we evolve in awareness, those different agendas can become partners in co-creation. We move from different “agendas” to different “strengths.” And their two different kinds of strengths, abilities, and motivations can become assets to one another if we learn to bring them into partnership.
