Ego Help

2 years, 3 months ago

Hey fellows hethens. I have had some social problems recently… and after seeing a picture here on High Existence, listing ego actions, I noticed I had done them all a lot of times these last months. I relationed my social problems with my acting and got pretty choked. I’m really into releasing myself from my ego, but how? What are you thoughts on that? thanks :)

Talk to @manimal

He’s pretty inquisitive on all this.

@xetado, Well, there are some general bits of advice, meditate and so on, but to be able to really tame your ego you gotta get more specific.

What is it about your ego that you want to change?
What bad traits are most prominent?
What do you have a hard time letting go of?
What are your ambitions?

Et cetera. You really gotta get more specific if you want advice that actually gets results.

@xetado,

as many Hethens on this website would attest, The Power of Now would would be an appropriate starting point to release yourself from your ego… listen to the audio book stream, download it, or read the eBook version:

@johnkorvac, Thanks, I will have a look at it.

@manimal, I complain oftenly, I blame other people for my problems, I show off A LOT (unfortunately I’m just seeing it now), I have a desire to be right all the time, sometimes I pretend to be hurt or something like that to have attention (even though later I never know why I did that) and seldom too, but happens, I label negatively some people I see in the streets. I think that those kinds of attitudes are making me lose my intimacy with the few good friends I have… I just want to be more socially acceptable towards my friends and maybe towards other potential friends. Any advice now?

@xetado,

my pleasure…

coincidentally this recently posted on HuffingtonPost,

“Oprah Winfrey sits down with spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle (author of The Power of Now) to discuss, as they describe, ‘being stuck in the mud.’ Tolle says stress is wanting something to be the way that it isn’t. So, Oprah asks, how do you decide when to accept your situation and when to work to change it? Watch the discussion in the video:”
