Spirit SELF and ego self ༗

Ego is a social fiction for which one person
at a time gets all the blame.
-Robert Anton Wilson


As human beings, we are similar in the respect that we each have a body, mind and soul. We all share the same distinguishing characteristics of human nature — ways of thinking, feeling and acting — independently of cultural influence.

However, in many ways, we are all quite unique — no two people are the same. There are over 7 billion people on the planet, and each of us has a different perspective, therefore presenting each of us with a different life experience.

Somewhere between these two — our common humanity and our unique individuality — lies personality.

Personality is about our different ways of being human: how we are all variations on the same theme; how we all share manifests in different styles of thinking, feeling and acting.


1. Something happens.
2. It means nothing.
3. We make up a story about what it means.
4. The story we make up creates our reality; it creates our world;
it creates what is possible and not possible.

The ego is not master in its own house.
-Sigmond Freud

We are born as Spirit — a pure innocent being. Our true essence is that of unconditional Love. As we grow up we become conditioned with so many lies-conditioned by others beliefs and concepts. From these concepts and beliefs, we form our personal selves (character roles we live out).

One of the biggest lies is that of our own imperfection, which is fed to us by ego thoughts. The ego is the voice in your mind, actually an impostor, who is pretending to be you. Believing the ego becomes an addiction. It is the ego who drives the vehicle, while you daydream behind the steering wheel.

The ego was created as a survival mechanism, which creates the illusion that we are separate from one another and separate from God. Thoughts are mind generated; not world generated.

The ego mind is essentially identification with one’s thoughts (belief in thoughts). We don’t see things as they are; we see them as we are. Thoughts like: “I have failed” or “I’m not good enough” are lies. Spiritual consciousness (awareness) comes from presence-from realizing you are not your thoughts.

You are the awareness behind these thoughts and can just as easily perceive, “I have learned something,” or “I am perfect just as I am.”

Your greatest protection from the ego is to become fully conscious and aware. Awareness is the power which is concealed within the present moment.
