Ego – Overcoming the Limitations of Personality While in Search of the Cosmic Self

Posted: 17 Oct 2013 01:52 AM PDT

The part of the person that is one's ego is a construction of self arising from external views or perceptions of who we are. The ego measures us against others and competes for a greater sense of self and fulfillment, bound by ideas of what we have done in the past and what we will do in the future and limited to a single dimensional aspect of self. Ego therefore is a unique tasking system of analyzing, judging and labeling, thus creating in your mind who you think you are. The ego can never be satisfied, and, because is exists on the outward surface, it can never attain a connection to universal cosmic awareness of self and others. To get beyond our ego self, we must manifest a new orientation towards a greater awareness and a connection to soul self. All of our fears, judgments, thoughts and emotions are part of ego. Beneath the ego is the soul where we can process the world though love and compassion and a sense of unity to all of the cosmos.

False Ego vs. Cosmic Ego

When we say that we must get rid of the ego, we are really saying that we must release ourselves from that false sense of self that is created by the mind and boxes us in as better than or less than. Our need is to release ourselves from the false sense of self that is created in society that labels who we are by the superficial aspects of ourselves such as our job, appearance, religion, sex, nationality, culture, etc.

"In this new era of unity consciousness, the ego serves a very important function. In the old paradigm of survival, the ego helped us to compete," explains author Marsha Phillips West. "In our new paradigm of peace and harmony, the ego helps us to integrate with one another into wholeness."
