Using Ego as a Tool For Spiritual Growth

Posted on June 28, 2012 by Seeker ...
Hi dear friends and followers, Today we explore the possible use of Ego as a tool for spiritual growth. Thank you for visiting my blog, and enjoy reading this posting.

EGO … we are quick to assign it as a negative characteristic, yet it’s a part of who we are and it is a tool that moves us toward greater enlightenment. Our drive as humans to progress is an internal disruption, a sensation that requires resolution as our egos must know what true reality is.

How does the ego come to know the true reality? It all begins with information accumulation. As we acquire information we define it and categorize it and it becomes “our truth”, which indeed it is, but is it “the truth”?

Once it was a true reality that the earth was flat …it was truth based on all human observation and community understanding of the time. Yet today would we say that was truth? Truth is a perspective relative to our own conclusions. How do we break the hold our ego’s have on our truth?

The first indication of a “break-through moment” is when you ask a question within yourself that challenges your current belief. The very fact that you ask the question is evidence that you’re ready to expand your truth. “Ask and you shall receive” was the promise; the action of the request demands that the ego gets the answer.

When someone else asks you a question that challenges your current belief that’s a different situation all together. The ego now takes over all reasoning and it is set-up to defend itself at all costs. The question itself does not lead to growth … it’s whose asking it.

Are you trying to grow, ascend and become enlightened? Do you want to see and experience true peace within yourself and within the world? Sadly most people are stuck in an ego belief system that keeps them held back from such growth.

What makes us identify ourselves as a Christian or a Muslim, a Democrat or Republican, a Conservative or Liberal, the 99% vs. the 1%? These are all egocentric identifications that have deeply planted roots within our psyche defining who we are. Can you uproot these limiting conclusions without compromising your identity?

Do we really need to defend our egocentric identification with some truth? We can choose to leverage our ego; to use it as the driving factor behind uniting and connecting with those with whom we disagree. When we consciously seek to find areas of connection with those with whom we disagree we can make rapid spiritual progress toward enlightenment. We quickly start seeing things differently, more clearly, creating a loving unifying internal sensation.

When you reach a point of leveraging your ego to always being open minded you’ll discover a vast resource of reasoning that will provide you with limitless powers of comprehension and insight. You will discover a love and a connection with those with whom you disagree.

 

Note; I started forgiving my enemies by just praying for them, for they would need the prayer when their time came some day. Now I just pray for them the same I would for an ill friend's recovery 

When you stop fighting to support “your idea” you see that any idea is always irrelevant to the Truth of love. We can individually ascend to this ultimate love awareness by choosing to do so. Can we as a community and as a species move to the ultimate reality of … “love thy enemy as we do ourselves”? This is “The Truth” that will set you free!


Thank you very much again, dear friends, for visiting my blog. Please share your thoughts with us, if you will. Have a great day.

  1. Hola Cindy,
    Siempre había oído como enseñanza que el ego era malo para el crecimiento porque era pensamiento, intelecto, en cambio tu razonamiento acerca de lo que es la verdad preguntándonos y cuestionándonos lo pone en entredicho y tiene mucho sentido. La unidad con las personas contrapuestas, no buscando nuestro egoísmo al creer que nuestra verdad es única y absoluta, es bueno para emprender un camino de crecimiento ilimitado.
    Me ha encantado, son éstas las enseñanzas que significan una guía, fuera de los convencionalismos o de aquello que estamos acostumbrados a oir y a ver.
    Un beso

  3. Sí, podemos aprender unos de otros. Podemos no estar de acuerdo unos con otros, porque cada uno tenemos nuestra propia manera de percibir las cosas únicas. Pero nosotros todos tenemos piezas que podemos estar de acuerdo con. Es como armar un rompecabezas de rompecabezas. tomar una pieza de cada persona que encontramos en nuestro camino de aprendizaje. +Maris Domenech

  4. El ego es bueno siempre y cuando uno recuerda que como seres humanos somos propensos a errores, por lo que son iguales en condición de seres vivos en esta realidad, y por lo tanto debe utilizar el ego para ayudar y apoyar el uno al otro a una mejor comprensión del valor de la vida y viviente
    Gracias por su comentario Maria Del Socorro

  7. I have always believed that a heallthy ego is a healthy self-image, and thus a positive self-identity. This essay goes a little further and teaches me how to use my positive self-identity not as just a shield against doubt or negativity, but to use it as an anchor point from which I can more effectively examine another's point of view without compromising myself. That is growth, and I want to continue to grow for as long as I am in this world.
