What is Embodiment # 61: Ego

embodiment 61

The moment in which something feels wrong is the moment when the ego takes over the reins.

The ego can only exist as a reaction to problems; its raison d’être is fixing things.

Ironically, ego is the problem. Its method is to create a formidable negative feedback loop of problem-reaction-“solution” (always a bigger problem) by which its reign is assured, and its policies (potentially) can become ever more draconian.

The only way to break this cycle is to allow the ego to be there, but recognize that, just because the mind says something is wrong, doesn’t make it so.
