Celebrities and the Ego

Posted: Updated:
Print Article

In today's vlog I address how the ego goes wild when it comes to celebrities. The ego loves to hook into gossip stories about celebrities we've never even met. These false illusions make us perceive the celebrity as more special than we are. This special celebrity relationship totally flips the ego out. In efforts to make ourselves feel better for not being as famous and cool we go into attack mode, judging someone we've never even met. I know, it sounds super trippy, but in some way we've all been there. In this video I get honest about how my ego is a star f*%&er, and I offer spiritual solutions for releasing our special illusions.
