E G O - Time to drop the bomb!
    #1700255 - 07/09/03 04:40 PM (20 years, 11 months ago)

I'm writing a report on ego.  It is by no means complete and some of my phrasing terminology may be incorrect, please excuse this.

:eyemouth:E G O:eyemouth: - Version 1.0

The ego is a program built in to everybody to rationalise what they *sense* into units of understandable information in the brain.  The ego also creates psychological barriers and ideas which control how the individual acts in every encounter throught thier life.  Your ego creates your love and your hate, all emotion.  Your ego creates games and boredom.  Your ego comprises of almost evrything you *imagine* yourself to be (imagine: hence it is not really you!).  Your real self lies behond this, your spirit, and is capapble of eternal contentness.  The problems, anxieties, paranoias etc that exist in the healthy mind are by-products of your ego too.  Also, the media utilizes ego to mind control & uncounciously alter society.

Some people have trouble recognising and controlling their ego until they become their ego, a manifestated program in the mind, whole heartedly believing their ignorance and becoming more and more deeply unhappy.  What lies behond ego is your true self, nothing you'd ever physically imagined yourself to be.  It cannot experience pleasure or pain, it cannot analyse itself because they are manifestations of the physical world.  It is your soul or spirit.  You have always been this but simpy never understood because you have been taught to interpret everything from what you sense thus limiting your view of the world.

Their are many ways to experience ego loss.  Yoga, fasting, meditation and use of psychedelic plants to name a few.  They all require deep dedication apart from the last.  The psychedelic is in its own league because it forces these experiences upon you.  This does not mean you will come away enlightened.  You may experience ego loss and not realise.  When you sober, this can even force a person to become more egotistical because they will most likely have a very negative view of themselves and the way they had been living and would therefore not wish to confront this but run away and build their ego back up.  This is natural its fear of the unknown.  You have to trust in your true self not just your rationalising mind and the program which is so familiar and easy to slip back to.

When you experience ego loss you know because in your mind you will be able to see the program which has held you back.  It is a striking realisation that everything you have done has had some deeper thought process behind it analysing and deciding how to behave which is mainly automated however can be counciously accessed and altered to some degree.  This thought process may have been jumping to false conclusions such as joe bloggs has a negative/positive view of me etc.  If you truly question your beleifs you will realise it could be either and very often changes depending on the mood of that person etc but your rationalising mind will of pinpointed one or the other depending on your mood and your ignorance will believe it until it becomes real to you or another person alters your ego by complimenting or cursing you.  This is manifestation it is an illusion and most of the western world have lives solely based around their illusions.

excellant...4 stars for you..but like you said in your essay, compliments and insults develop and mold an ego. Its easy for people who recieve alot of compliments to fall into a big ego with out realizing it, so...stay true...

Actually what you're calling "ego" in your essay is really the mind. Ego is just one more delusion of the mind...it's only another illusion.

Love & Light,
