Whenever you try to get rid of your ego you are basically trying to get rid of yourself. That creates self-sabotage, self-aggression and repression, ultimately illness.
As long as you will be alive you’ll have an ego. Which is not an evil monster accidentally dropped into your being, it is your personality, the collection of qualities, taste, memories, fears, conditionings, beliefs. It’s uniquely you.
Everything in this plane is the same, opposite pole of the same spectrum. There’s no a good or evil. There is a divine form and the the further you go away from it the more distorted it gets.
The more wounded and traumatised you are the more distorted your ego, and the more unhappy and unfulfilling your reality.
Too much ego means a great distortion due to traumas and too much indentification with the personality.
Too little ego also means great distortion due to trauma and lack of dentification with the personality. This is typical of over sensitive people. Emphats &co. None of the two brings happiness.
You can’t get rid of the ego it because this is what you came here to do. Learn to be human, accept all your flaws and love yourself to death. Not in a narcissist way, but with compassion and humility.
We don’t come here to learn to be souls, we already are.
Instead learn to stop abusing yourself, lie to yourself, have courage to face your fears. Learn to say NO, and accept love and happiness into your life. Have the courage to be you. - 54 minutes ago
