Ego, a word used by many and repeated over and over recently especially by those throwing insult after insult after insult, by those swearing and shouting appearing to be demanding attention to the * I am here , hey look at me * sense in time at the moment.

So, what exactly is this ego?

Ego is that state of awareness which thinks of you as separate from the other. Ego thinks in terms of guiltiness and shames and glories of the past, and it thinks in terms of fears and hopes about the future. It never thinks about what ‘is’, but always thinks about ‘what was’ and ‘what could be’. Ego thinks in terms of many as opposed to the One, the one pure intelligence.

Another note that I would like to share with you all, based on the illusion of ego.

You can speak from the spirit or from the Ego, as you choose. If you speak from the spirit you have chosen to "be still and know that i am god" these words are inspired because they reflect knowledge. If you speak from the ego you are disclaiming knowledge instead of affirming it, and thus dis-spiriting yourself. Do not embark on useless journeys, because they are indeed vain. The ego may desire them, but spirit cannot embark on them because it is forever unwilling to depart from it's foundation.

Not one can escape from illusions unless he looks at them, for not looking is they way they are protected. There is no need to shrink from illusion, for they cannot be dangerous.

Perhaps some of our concepts will become clearer and more personally meaningful if the ego's use of guilt is clarified. The ego has purpose, just as the Holy Spirit has. The ego's purpose is Fear, because only the fearful can be egotistic. The Ego's logic is as impeccable as that of the Holy Spirit, because your mind has the means at it's disposal to side with Heaven or Earth, as it elects. But then again, remember that both are in you.
