Books, Complex, and Confused: "The ego isn't wrong; it's just unconscious. When you observe the ego in yourself, you are beginning to go beyond it. Don't take the ego too seriously. When you detect egoic behavior in yourself, smile. At times you may even laugh. How could humanity have been taken in by this for so long? Above all, know that the ego isn't personal. It isn't who you are. If you consider the ego to be your personal problem, that's just more ego." ECKHART TOLLE Via @conscious_collective - ​"So what is it that we mean by the word “I”? Well, obviously “I” is simply our symbol of ourselves—a symbol that represents the entire organism of the universe as it is centered on our individual consciousness—and the symbol is not the real thing. ​Our entire culture has become so psychologically obsessed with the world of symbols, of social conventions, of mental divisions and measurements, that we are no longer in touch with the whole of nature—a whole that is so vast, complex, and interconnected that it couldn’t possibly be confined to the social conventions of language and symbols. ​Because of our confusion of the true nature of reality with reality as it is conceptualized or measured, we have attached our identity to the ego, something that has no basis in physical reality. The ego is essentially a large collection of thoughts, all connected to one singular thought at the center that we call “I” or “me.” When we are confused with the world of measurement, confused with the world of illusion or maya, we carry within us this “I” thought that we think we are, and we have many different concepts about ourselves and the way we relate to reality that we attach to this thought. The problem with this is that the “I” thought is really an illusion, and so we feel that we have to constantly protect, defend, and advocate for this illusory identity. So we come up with a wide range of different beliefs, concepts, ideas, and opinions, that are mixed in with our conditioning, our traumas, and our various neuroses, in order to protect and steward this illusory thought that we call “I.”" ~A quote from my book "The Answer Is YOU: A Guide to Mental, Emotional, & Spiritual Freedom" • TheAnswersIsYOU Awareness Ego Illusion Truth Love Oneness Awakespiritual
