Ego relaxation is not to be confused with being passive or resigned, or neglecting your ordinary responsibilities in life. It’s simply an invitation for the “me” who feels separate, feels insecure and afraid, and thus reverts to historical patterns of control to get things done to relax. While this separate self feels like “me,” it is really a network of adaptive defenses, beliefs and learned strategies laid down between the age of 0-5 that you have come to think of as “me.”

frustration, irritation, anger, and outrage.
