I love what Dr. Butera, one of my yoga teachers and founder of Yoga Life Institute of Penn., say's about the ego and how best, for us to come to peace with it;-)
Embrace the ego do not try to eradicate it:-) Ah, I feel better already.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGgYU9zqHUw

My Daughter, Sydney asked yesterday, "Why do we celebrate Easter?" We discussed the Christian celebration of the rebirth of Christ and Mother Earth's celebration of the rebirth of nature. It all boils down to Spring being the time to celebrate new life, right?
Below is a post I wrote last year, I hope you can see the perennial purpose of me sharing this;-)
The Easter Bunny is coming this weekend and my son asked, "Mom, what does the Easter Bunny have to do with eggs anyway. They don't lay eggs." So we had a conversation about Spring time, and the rebirth of nature, and new life and how the prolific bunny and eggs are symbols of the new life and rebirth that takes place in Spring.
The earth is teaming with new life and it is a perfect time to celebrate the season of rebirth, Easter, and "Earth Day"!
So, get outside, go for a walk, practice Yoga on the lawn. (I hear the folks at the White House will be practicing on their front lawn, prior to hunting for Easter eggs this year.)
Anyway you celebrate, find a way to include our wonderful life giving Earth.
