In the spiritual scene, people think that we can break the ego…
And if we have broken the ego, we get enlightenment…
The Psychologists don’t think that it is possible to break the ego permanently and they can prove that.
What is the ego?
In the spiritual/religious scene, we define the ego as the root of all sorrow or as the collection of our negative feelings, thoughts, and habits. Actually, this is not true!
Our ego is the collection of all of our habits, feelings, and thoughts.
Everything that we have learned is part of our ego, be it our skills, habits, bad temper, and even our diseases.
When we had been a baby, we had inside of us the divine and our animal mind that is part of the ego.
We grew up and lost the connection to the divine, and our ego was formed through our environment, parents, and so on.
Actually, our ego helps us to survive. For that reason, the Psychologists are not against the ego.
Through spiritual, religious contemplation, we increase the divine inside of us. So that we get reconnected to the divine and can feel the divine as love, or bliss or calmness of the mind or as a Satori or Samadhi.
Many of the holy saints or gurus are teaching us that we have to get rid totally of our ego to become divine, egoless, or enlightenment. And these gurus proclaim that they are egoless.
The history tells us rather more that these so divine gurus have cheated us…
We all lose our ego during our sleep. And when we wake up, our ego is back.
After we experience a Samadhi or Satori, we are again in our ego. We can only lose our ego for a specific time and never permanently.
If we break our ego permanently we will die… Because our ego is so intervened in our body and mind. We can’t live without our ego.
The great Guru Ramakrishna said we can’t break our ego, we can only make our ego a servant of God or of the people…
Instead, to build up more and more our selfish Ego, we can become step by step a servant of God. And this part is following the Christian, Sufis, Yogis, and Buddhists.
And it starts that we try our best to serve our family, coworkers, clients, customer, God…
If we combine it with spiritual and religious contemplation, we connect with God and experience the divine….
