This has become one of my favorite games to play with myself. Say I see an old egoic pattern playing out, doesn't matter where, can be any type of interaction. I become very present with the energy that is playing out, whatever the old script is. I have become increasingly non-reactive.
I see it. Clearly. Then I smile to myself, and do something different. No habitual responses allowed. I just do something different. At that point, the ego is confused. It doesn't know what to do. It has no choice but to find a new script.
And the beauty is, I just don't care anymore what happens. Happiness is assured.
