Journey Stone #61


Journey Stone #61 Ego

Conscious me, aware
of outer reality. Separate
from you, and all others
in world around me.

Healthy balance of self-esteem
tempered by knowledge that
overweening pride will cause
me to fall flat on my face.

  1. A good reminder for the day after April Fool’s day. Pride before the fall….yes the universe has a way of fitting us back into our proper place.


  2. Given my dementia, my ego doesnt have much chance to swell, hee hee. Love this stone, Elizabeth.

    happy to add ‘overweening’ to my vocabulary. I haven’t consciously heard it before.

      Thank you Earlybird. I am always surprised when words creep in without my permission. It means I have to go look them up and make sure I’m saying exactly what I mean. But, it’s also fun.

    More than many faults, hubris inevitably extracts a heavy toll. Well told (no pun intended.)
