Well it fer sure doesn't make much sense to dump the practical self. Without a name, ID, job title, etc. how'rya gonna navigate everyday life?jimmyrich wrote:Somehow, it never made any sense that I should DUMP my now fixed ego and replace it with: THE SELF or ULTIMATE REALITY, etc. as good as all of that seems.
It's the psychological self, I/ego that's the problem child, right? The virtual identity born of conditioning, memory, habit, projection, etc. The compelling story of ME. I've heard lots of people here and elsewhere say it, and I'll add my voice to the many: The more you get to know how I/ego works, the more you see (through) its tricks, the more you can enjoy it, play with it ... like you might enjoy a mask at a Halloween party.
