Ego...



  • The ego is the worst confidence trickster we could ever figure, we could ever imagine. 'Cause you don't see it.
  • And the single biggest con is "I am you".
  • The problem is that the ego hides in the last place that you'd ever look within itself.
  • It disguises its thought as your thought, its feelings as your feelings. You think it's you.
  • Peoples' need to protect their own egos knows no bounds. They will lie, cheat, steal, kill, do whatever it takes to maintain what we call ego boundaries.
  • People have no clue that they're imprisoned. They don't know that there is an ego. They don't know the distinction.
  • At first it's difficult for the mind to accept that there's something beyond itself, that there's something of greater value and greater capacity for discerning truth than itself.
  • In religion, the ego manifests as the devil. And of course no one realizes how smart the ego is because it created the evil so you could blame someone else.
  • In creating this imaginary external enemy, it usually made a real enemy for ourselves, and that become a real danger to the ego but that's also the ego's creation.
  • There is no such thing as an external enemy. No matter what that voice in your head telling you. All perceptions of an enemy is a projection of the ego as the enemy.
  • In that sense, you could say that 100 percent of our external enemies are of our own creation...
  • Your greatest enemy... is your own inner perception, is your ignorance, is your own ego...
