ego, fight it, or embrace it?
    #1436134 - 04/07/03 02:35 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Say i feel like spending some time with a woman...since i never do...am i best of not fighting the feeling? and just go with my ego and embrace it?? and when i come up with philosphy, i might as well embrace that too, and post it for people to read.

it seems like the best route..just knowing its my ego...and embracing it. and having a healthy ego.

It depends. Is spending time with a women an addiction or a preference?
You can tell if it is an addiction by your reaction when you DON'T get this time with a women. Do you say to yourself "I would have liked to spend time with her, but there is nothing I can do about it right now, so I might as well forget about it until the oppurtunity rises (pun intended) and do something else"? Or do you get hung up on the issue, experiencing all sorts of negative emotions?
If you have any negative feelings, that's addiction. Your ego distorts your view of what's around you to try to protect your interests in these addictions. This creates all sorts of seperation between yourself and others, because you consider them either a threat or an aide to your addictions.
However, if you upgrade your addictions to prefrences, if you get what you want, that's great, but if you don't get what you want, it doesn't bother you. No sense wasting good energy beating yourself up over something that is out of your control.
This is where your ego comes in. Use it as a tool to show you where your addictions lie, and then go about ridding yourself of the addictions.
For more detail, get ahold of "The Handbook to Higher Consciousness". It's really great.
Good luck.

awesome advice, fireworks...


oh yea, I say fight your ego, beat the shit out of it and find out exactly what it's all about from every angle, let it know that your spirit is in charge, and then nurse it back to health and embrace it.
the hard part is realizing where you're at in between... i guess that is what music and meditation is for.

Once you destroy your ego, only then you can build one that is worth nourishing.

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

This is sort of unrelated, but I will justify its place here anyways..
I'm downloading a lot of Native American flute music for my group's next trip. I am led to believe that this kind of music (just the very nature of it) will really help your ego lose control and open up some new worlds... try getting the stuff without drums, just the flute. Listen to the music with the drums when you aren't tripping, the rhythm just might induce trance. hehe
Peace.

the ego is just a front.. its all fake. the time you spend with a girl is only there to boost your ego. make you feel good about yourself. the sad part is, that person is only trying to feel good about themself, too. the human ego is the center of corruption in the human existence. we live to feed it, and nourish it, i guess its "healthy" when you keep getting juices shot inside your head that make you feel happy. but is there anything at all the ego can give you that will make you happy on a level beyond that "feeling"? i don't think so.

Gotta find the balance, my man.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
