Our ego is a man-made representation of who we ‘think’ we are. Our ego is what defines our ‘man-made’ concept of self. Our ego is who ‘we’ work for; hence our ego is who bosses us around. Our ego rules and governs our reality; thus our ego is what totally controls our life. Our ego manipulates our thoughts and awareness and in turn makes all of our decisions.
Our ego ensures that we maintain and honor all of our man-made beliefs. Hence, our ego is ‘SELFISH’, which is why our ‘ego’ and our ‘self’ are considered to be one in the same.
