At the Heart of Ego

November 5, 2011 at 9:31 am Leave a comment

Ego is the most subtle of all vices. Unlike the other vices, ego stands alone and needs no-one. It is the only vice whose entry point is through the intellect and not through feelings of the heart.

Ego cannot tolerate the praise of others. It lives off comparison, competition and criticism because what ego wants to show is that it is better than the other.

The eyes of ego are very big in seeing the mistakes and weaknesses of other, yet the eyes to see the self are so small that its own mistakes are barely visible.

Ego blocks any positive feeling. It does not allow you to appreciate, accept or value others.

If we are able to open the door of the heart and allow feelings of mercy and appreciation to influence the intellect then ego will soon lose its power. Otherwise ego will take control and create its kingdom within your life isolating you from many possibilities of good feelings and friends.

Make a stand for the heart. Challenge the ego.

 

Om Shanti
