Develop Self Awareness of Inner and Outer Dialogues through the Observer and Compassionate Witness. Refocusing mental perception from Negative Thoughts to its Positive Polarity through Unconditional Love and Forgiveness towards the self and others. Learning how to focus on positive thoughts to replace negative thoughts are the first stage of ego discipline, the second stage is applying neutrality or neutral association through sustained focus, as in inner stillness found during meditation. This is because many people in ego behavior misrepresent neutrality as disassociative reaction to external events or others feelings. Disassociation and neutrality is not the same state of consciousness. Disassociation is disconnected from circumstances and disconnected from spiritual consciousness. While neutrality is connected through self-awareness, through the observer point of the heart intelligence of compassionate witness. This process is called engaged detachment.
