What a Miserable Day From Stillness Speaks - The Ego & The Anger

Saturday, April 28, 2012Atishay Jain




“What a miserable day.” “She didn't have the decency to return my call.” “She let me down.” Little stores we tell ourselves and others, often in the form of complaints. They are unconsciously designed to enhance our always deficient sense of self through being right and making something or someone wrong. Being right places us in a position of imagined superiority and so strengthen our false sense of self, the ego. This also creates some kind of enemy. Yes, the ego needs enemies to define its boundary. And even the weather can serve that function. Through habitual mental judgment and emotional contraction you have a personalized reactive relationship to people and events in your life. These are all forms of self created suffering but are not recognized as such because to the ego they are satisfying. The ego enhances itself through reactivity and conflict. 

Just Think How peaceful life would be without those ego and Anger. “It is raining.” “She did not call.” “I was there, she was not.”
