The Ego Is Dangerous. Learn How To See Beyond Your Ego! It is apparent that I don't know you from your neighbor, however, I would like to bring you into my world for a little while. I mean that I would like to increase your awareness of your own life. Yeah, I know that sounds strange, but I only say that because it's in reference to character education.
The Human Ego and How To See Beyond It
The Human Ego is just one side of your dual consciousness. If you do not realize it exists, then you're not likely to get to ever knowing yourself. Recognizing it is too important.
If you're not familiar with character education, I've dedicated an entire series of articles to the topic. Who I am is irrelevant, but the message brought to you isn't a myth or a gimmick of some sort and trust, I am not a person who is full of themselves either. Thus, my ego is in check. I am not sure if you can do that or not?
Because, I don't know you I have to give you the benefit of the doubt and simply continue writing. However, if you have trouble distinguishing when your ego tends to get in your way, then this article might be a little too much for you. You see, I know many people do not know or realize the value of character education and I see it as my part of my purpose in life, to help bring on more awareness.
The Human Ego...
The Human Ego is one of the most destructive aspects of life. It can put your life in danger. It can turn off women. It can show other people you have no value for other people. It can teach children the wrong way to be.
The ego can just about ruin your life in every aspect of living. The ego of the "alpha" male, yeah, you know the ones, who have more hormones raging than brain cells active. These sort of people are not harmless by any stretch of the imagination and need close supervision, because you never know what they are going to do next.
The ego steps in when people feel confident about what they have experienced and learned, during their life. There is a point where too much becomes a detriment, even to oneself. It must be recognized, before any harm comes to oneself or others. It must been seen and the only way you're going to do it- is by being consciously active in your mindset.
The Human Consciousness and Conscience
The Human Consciousness and conscience each person has is unique. The consciousness not only makes one aware of their own life, but allows for a unique perspective about other people's life as well.
Each person has a conscience and to the dismay of many people who claim mass murderers have said that they were listening to the conscience when they killed, please save your sob story. You bought into the BS that has controlled the masses for centuries.
If you really want to get serious- your conscience is your moral guide. I find it quite funny when people claim religion has a higher moral guide than that of one's conscience. It is absurd and absolutely foolish to even compare the two.
How To See Past Ego?
How to see past ego? Well, be consciously aware that you do not indeed know everything there is to know and the remote possibility does remain that there indeed are people around you that are actually smarter than you.
When you have your conscience tug at you, after you have entered into a conversation, letting you know that you do not have all the facts and are operating on your own individual belief, do realize that your actions are technically morally wrong.
When you use your ego, to inject your belief, into a conversation, and you don't have all the facts, then you're in essence lying. Your ego prevents you from rationalizing it as lying, because you just tell yourself that it's what you believe to be true, even if it's not. You have to consciously recognize your ego's activity, just like your mind and your pride's activity.
In the end, you only do yourself more harm than good, by not minding your ego. Being completely unaware of the damage your ego inflicts is not an excuse. You eat, sleep, breathe and do everything else with a conscious mind. It might be good if you started recognizing it.
Thank you for your time.
