Im not the one to give advise...but the advise i can give is to do what feels right to you. Visualize the energy around you, and anylize what the ego is, how it effects your everyday life, and what it does to people, and what it would be like without it. Here is a good read: http://www.deoxy.org/egofalse.htm

Well, everyone meditates. If you want to learn more, go outside and observe the way Nature breathes. See it??? Now drink it in through your pupils.

Ego loss? I've only been there once, and it's kind of something that just happens. It arises through your individual genetic unfoldment. (Of course, all types of chemicals can speed or slow down this unfoldment process... such as... mushrooms)

So I guess this is the part where I tell you to take some fuckin mushrooms and prepare to humble yourself before Reality.

That is an excellent bit of truth from Osho, one of my favorite teachers. The following bit struck me particularly hard today:

Quote:

  The ego is always looking for some trouble. Why? Because if nobody pays attention to you, the ego feels hungry.

      It lives on attention.

      So even if somebody is fighting and angry with you, that too is good because at least the attention is paid. If somebody loves, it is okay. If somebody is not loving you, then even anger will be good. At least the attention will come to you. But if nobody is paying any attention to you, nobody thinks that you are somebody important, significant, then how will you feed your ego?

      Other's attention is needed.

      In millions of ways you attract the attention of others; you dress in a certain way, you try to look beautiful, you behave, you become very polite, you change. When you feel what type of situation is there, you immediately change so that people pay attention to you.

      This is a deep begging.

      A real beggar is one who asks for and demands attention. And a real emperor is one who lives in himself; he has a center of his own, he doesn't depend on anybody else.






I realize that this is what I have been doing here on the Shroomery the last few days; begging for attention. There is more to it of course, I enjoy reading others' thoughts and contributing to discussions, but there is no question I have been feeding my ego. Time to disconnect and head outside... :wink:

I think I understand. In an essence, watching yourself and focusing on what is actually troubling you will bring you to the realization that whatever it is - it doesn't matter. Do not be concerned with others - you must figure out yourself before you begin to help others.

That's the main point that I got from reading the link. I think I need to read it over and over though, because there seems to be so much information that I wasn't really able to get.

:blush:

That read also says you cannot get rid of the ego, only notice it is there, and how it works. It is the process of life. I can see alot of ego in myself. It saddens me, but only recently have i relized it, and i guess that is the first step in losing it. Peace.
