What Is The Ego? (+ Is It Bad?)
The ego is what most people label as your personality because it identifies with traits, habits and beliefs, constructing hard wired connections in your subconscious mind.
You are born unconditioned, but during your formative years you’re conditioned by those closest to you. This is when your ego began to construct an identity based on the traits, habits and beliefs of your parents/guardians, which are heavily influenced by the conditioning of society.
Everything outside of you is out of your control, therefore your ego can’t control it, it can only react to it. Your ego will do whatever it takes to defend your constructed identity. It does so because it believes it’s ensuring your survival. It will keep you thinking and feeling in familiar cycles because it can predict the outcome, keeping your identity intact.
Your ego is simply a misunderstood friend who needs intentional guidance from you.
Think of a moment when you lost something or someone in your life, whether it’s a job, house, possessions, a relationship, or a loved one. In these moments, you may have lost a sense of identity - but they’re also an opportunity for us to go within and remember who we are.
The truth is, there’s nothing you need outside of yourself to know who you are at a core level. It’s already embedded deep within you, buried under the layers of conditioning.
You must peel back these layers and remember who you are in order to create the life of your dreams.
