How do I escape the ego's ties to struggle?

Deepak Chopra
Alternative & Complementary Medicine
Pure awareness is the same as the awareness you now have, but itsscope is infinite. Pure awareness isn't bound by time; it knows noobstacles. When you have a desire, all solutions are known at thelevel of your soul. These vary in how easy they are to attain. Ifyou want a new car, having one miraculously appear in your drivewayis one possibility, but more likely is an outcome in which you workfor the money to buy the car. However, by precluding thepossibility of miracles the ego has tied itself to struggle,thereby overlooking the infinite power of spirit.

To change this situation, shift your expectations. Ask to achieveyour desires with the least effort. Spirit will uphold this shiftmore and more as you learn how to live from the basis ofnon-struggle.
