A Message From an Entrpreneur
The owners of Kurly Klips emailed me this & I want to share it:
Leena is one of my best friends. We both love studying philosophy and religious texts. Recently, she's been studying the Arabic word for devil in Islamic literature.
She said, "You know, Lana, people often speak of the devil as a beast with horns. But I believe that interpretation is too literal. The devil is your ego. Think about it, it murmurs lies in your ear. And you believe it!"
What kind of lies is your ego telling you? Maybe it's telling you you're better than someone else or more deserving. Maybe it says you can't succeed unless that other person fails. Maybe it ties your self-worth to how other people perceive you. Maybe it tells you to lash out at another, to put them in their place.
Giving into your ego might feel good in the moment, but in the long-term, it leaves scars. Scars that linger in your mind for years. Scars that remind you of how it all went down and how you felt when it did. All these scars from worthless battles.
This reminds me of the quote:
Don't make permanent decisions because of temporary reations.
Life is all about decisions amigos, chose wisely.
