Re: Sanity: not trying to suppress or eliminate the ego

Why are you afraid of what others think of you ? I don't know.. Others are just more important than me A part of me feels inferior, not allowed, bad, sick, weird, unwanted, hated, judged Are you defending or protecting a self image ? which is part of ego ... when you project an image of what others...

Re: Sanity: not trying to suppress or eliminate the ego

Nice Sandy

That calms me and gives me some courage. Courage to beauty and life again. Let go of fears (or just let them be there and have no power) and trust my true self, just let go..

Phil2, I will get back.. Need some time to relax and think/feel more

Re: Sanity: not trying to suppress or eliminate the ego

Well all what you said is true, but isn't ego also an identification with a physical form: your body ? Then an important question arises: are you your body ? Will "my world" collapse, and then what? Identification with your body is just a thought ... why would the world collapse when you drop this ...

Re: Sanity: not trying to suppress or eliminate the ego

Well all what you said is true, but isn't ego also an identification with a physical form: your body ? Then an important question arises: are you your body ? To be honest, I have not looked much at that And I find it hard to answer or deal with I think, for most of the time, yes I am my body Once i...

Re: Sanity: not trying to suppress or eliminate the ego

How can I learn to see the ego in myself and others, while not wanting to eliminate it? Is the ego part of nature or simply a nonexistent illusion? First of all: WHAT is ego exactly ? ?? As I see it, I think/feel it is: Emotional identification. Individuality. A strong sense of a separate ME. Bagga...

Sanity: not trying to suppress or eliminate the ego

I feel closer to getting more sane/awake I think I have a made a huge mistake.. I have been trying to suppress/eliminate my ego, and spotting the ego in others, negatively The egoic mind attacking the egoic mind. This is or leads to insanity I think something neanderthal in me wrongly did this: Erro...

Re: My ugly ego is back

And be cautious of anyone who thinks and acts like they know what's best for you. Trust what feels right from your own inner guidance. That includes anyone posting in this forum. There are some who play fast and loose with context to sound like they know when maybe they just bought in to something ...

Re: My ugly ego is back

Then you should be working under the guidance of your current therapist. I guess you're right But I don't feel I can trust them. They have never read or heard about Tolle and probably think of it as "too far out". They don't believe in spirituality. They are society. They work with logic, science, ...

Re: My ugly ego is back

Another thing.. I'm diagnosed with schizotypal disorder and I take antipsychotic medicine. Not much, but without it I can't sleep, racing thoughts, intrusive thoughts, paranoia (everyone observes and judges me, even the neighbours behind walls), I tip over in the unreal, afraid to go out etc. So may...

Re: My ugly ego is back

How about for some time turn the TV off, and introduce some stillness into your life. Then turn the TV on and feel how each different show effects you, then you can answer this for yourself and you will not be following a Guru's orders, you will be your own guide. It was mostly, ehm what its called...

Re: My ugly ego is back

To me, that was well said Onceler Right now I'm thinking: When watching TV, do you just watch whatever comes (extreme violence, depressing crap etc.), or do you actively change what you view? Fore, I don't completely challenge what you're saying.. Some of it rings true But I feel like, in my life ri...

Re: My ugly ego is back

I'm standing in the shower, feeling the water.. "ah, this is nice, refreshing, relaxing, I'm ok" Then I have an intrusive thought: "no! you should be stressed, this is not ok, you should be busy, don't relax, stress, stress, you are not ok!" I have looked at this thought so much.. I know it is the "...

Re: My ugly ego is back

Starve that which you do not like. Oh my :shock: this does not seem a compassionate way to co-exist, but does sort of resemble the dysfunctional egoic patterns of todays society. :cry: It's not about "cleaning up the world" or other people.. it's about not giving fuel to own destructive/negative th...
