Hello.

It mat help understanding to see the"ego" as a mechanism performing a function--that of seeking to provide a sense of significance and being to a mind when/where that sense is otherwise absent/not experienced by that mind. Thus attempting to compensate for what is not otherwise apparent.

Because the "ego" mechanism is self contained within that mind, the only way it can function as required is by trying to provide that compensatory experience by seeking significance by relative measure--measuring against others--more than, better than, etc. This is inevitably a tendency relying upon deploying divisive one up"man"ship.

In order to diminish the effect of this divisive tendency, a means of experiencing that necessary sense of significance and being by other and absolute--rather than relative--means is required.

Love actually.

One way is to recognize what the ego does that you wish would stop.
-Whatever feels icky comes from the ego...that is the simple formula!!!
Jealousy, hatred, indignation, procrastination, laziness, gluttony, vengeance, cruelty, stealing, lying, cheating...etc.
Then, not doing those things! Hahahaha, I mean it.
You want to strangle someone? Do the opposite:

Be super nice to them and praise them for something.
Gosh, the ego HATES that!

-What feels good, is kind and constructive comes from godliness...
or from the Holy Spirit's Thought System...
not the Ego or Worldly Thought System.

Now pls, no one say, 'It feels good to eat the whole pie, tho. And get mad and get revenge on someone.'
No, it doesn't, you bozos, not in the true sense.

Now, if you would like to 'undo' the ego...there is a fascinating fast way...
I discovered it in Dec 2015...now, this was after 40 years of meditating, ha!
It is really quite amazing...a Self Study book ...no groups, leaders or donations! Ha!

"A Course In Miracles" or ACIM...I was shocked to see a difference in 28 days doing the 365 Lessons!

But, if you were interested, really, I would recommend an intro book first...diving right in, most people go, 'Huh? This is not for me.'
But, it is with an introduction.
Ego takes a back seat, my friend!!


Btw, the previous people said great stuff! As usual. Go team!

Yes I'm doing a course in miracles at the moment, that's a pretty concrete thing you can do for an entire year and I'm very fond of it.

1} Ego is not alive,

2} we can place ego to the side whenever neccesary,

3} ego does not equate with only lying to self i.e. ego can also equate with search for truth.
