Just finished reading this life changing book. Understanding ego, how it works and why we get ourselves into situations where we are unhappy. https://www.amazon.com/New-Earth-Awakening-Purpose-Selection/dp/0452289963
Our ego is our identity, without it we believe we are nothing. The reality without it we are happy people who can be present. So how does ego show up?
Eckhart Tolle uses examples and stories, that help you recognise where ego gets in the way of happiness.
Our image of ourselves is derived through where we live, the car we drive, the gym we join, telling others who we know, our celebrity encounters, what we know, our experience, qualifications and the list goes on. We believe we need these to be successful, but what is success if you get there are you are having no more fun!
“Nonresistance, nonjudgement, and non attachment are the three aspects of true freedom and enlightened living.” Summarised beautifully by Eckhart.
These are articles previously written on the topics:
What am I working on? Judgement
This is a book on spirituality and is not a religious book. There are references to religion only.
