Ego

"The ego and the Self dwell as intimate friends in the same body, like two golden birds perched in the same tree. The ego eats the sweet and sour fruits of the tree, while the Self looks on detached.
For as long as you identify with the ego, you will feel joy and sorrow. But if you know you are the Self, the Lord of Life, the supreme source of light; the supreme source of love, you will be free from suffering;
You will transcend duality and live in a state of Oneness."
~ Upanishad ~

  2. WOW!!! This is a very heavy message. I don't know if I can be totally free from my ego. I guess only God can free me from my ego. ;-))))

  3. Thanks Surjit for this post.

    Ego is indeed human biggest enemy.

    The bible tell us in Philippians 2:3 - "Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself."

    We must remember to be humble at all times.

    Blessings to you Surjit

  5. Yes, ego and Self live in harmony inside of us, but only when we stop eating the fruits will we finally let go of our dream character. And boy is letting go of that dream character difficult!

    The Self is watching!
