    My ego is my "childish thing" that constantly needs to be "put away". She developed around the age of 8 and has the attitude of 'I want what I want and I want it now!"  I decided that I was somehow deprived and deserved to have my own way in everything....this however, hasn't served me very well and when I am CONSCIOUS of the brat in my head, I can laugh at her and gently replace her with childlike wonder and awe at my world and a true sense of gratitude for my life.  At 62 it has taken me a lifetime of learning and relearning to hone my consciousness so that I can live more in spirit than in ego.  I expect it will continue and hopefully I will transition with a smile on my face!
