Why Ego is the Main Source of Anger and Envy (Ego Part 2)

Published

on

After realizing that the ego impedes personal growth, I decided to study and contemplate about it. It then dawned on me that the ego is our enemy because it’s the primary source of anger and envy.

The ego as I defined in the article, The Era of the Ego and the Destruction of Intuition, is a feeling of self-importance. The ego makes you believe you are more important than other members of the society and, therefore, you must be heard, respected, admired, and followed. It makes you believe that you are always right and everybody else is wrong.

The ego can result in you being angered by petty issues. For instance, it can make you outraged by any action or word that appears to disrespect you. Insults (even from kids), and petty jokes will make you angry if you are egoistic. You’ll even get mad when people ignore you or argue with you because the ego believes you deserve admiration and you are always right.

Anger arises when you misinterpret things. The ego will thus make you prone to anger since it’s the King of misinterpretation. For instance, if an individual accidentally steps on your foot, the ego will believe it was intentional hence making you angry.

Besides causing anger, the ego also causes envy. You become envious when you feel resentful when other people progress, succeed, or attain something you don’t have.

The ego causes envy because it hates to see others appear more important than you. If your neighbor succeeds or buys something you believe makes her more important than you, the ego feels bad because your neighbor’s progress makes it feel inferior or less important. The ego always wants you to be ahead of everybody so that you become the most important person. It’s hurt when others progress faster than you and appear more important hence making you feel envious.

For this reason, the next time you feel angry or envious, realize that it’s the ego causing these feelings. Then separate yourself from the ego and know that it’s an illusion since it isn’t your true self. Your true self is an extension of Infinite Intelligence/Cosmic Consciousness, and it never gets angry because it interprets everything positively. Moreover, it’s never envious because it understands that we are all connected and we must rejoice in others’ success.

Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker – Part 2

Published

on

Last week, I welcomed you in my mind by sharing my most powerful meditations. Here are more intriguing meditations I’d love to share with you.

Enjoy:

1.Meditations on Human Beings as the Only Animals that Are Suffering

Despite the decline of the natural world, animals are not suffering. They are still living the way they lived when they were created. On the other hand, despite our easy access to basic needs, we are the only animals that are suffering. This suffering is caused by our obsession with the future, over-focusing on material wealth, and the lack of trust in the universe/God/Infinite Intelligence.

2.Meditations on The Ego and Creativity

The ego constantly thinks about many things. For instance, it constantly worries about losing or gaining material possessions, dressing better than others, maintaining social status, and so on. This overthinking associated with the ego kills creativity because creativity only lives in a calm mind.

3.Meditations on a Higher State of Consciousness

A higher state of consciousness is any state that allows an individual to gain a deeper understanding of life, reality, and the inner-self. It results in an individual feeling that she is connected to a Higher Power and all living things. Besides, it increases an individual’s depth of perception and leads to the realization that all human beings are connected to Infinite Intelligence.

4.Meditations on Virtue

Virtue leads to an amazing life. For instance, you’ll live an amazing life if you cultivate the virtue of love because you’ll always wish the best for others. Besides, you’ll avoid temptations that can ruin your life when you cultivate self-discipline, and you’ll know how to navigate through life when you cultivate the virtue of wisdom.

5.Meditations on How the Illuminati Makes us Ignorant

The Illuminati ensures we have several TV shows to watch so that we never have the time to question our beliefs. It keeps us busy with social media and makes us focus on amassing material possessions hence resulting in us not having enough time to question reality and understand our true nature.

6.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence as the Most Aware Being

The more intelligent a being is, the more aware it becomes. Human beings and mammals are more aware than insects because of their high levels of intelligence. As well, insects are more aware than bacteria because they are more intelligent.

For this reason, the most intelligent being- Infinite Intelligence- is more aware than all creatures. It’s highly aware of its existence and that of other creatures.  This means it knows everything about us, including where we are, what we want, and so on.

Concluding Remarks

Always find time to think deep, and you’ll realize amazing insights that will help you in the journey of life.

The Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker

I love spending my time meditating on life, and I often note down the thoughts that pop into my mind while meditating. Today, I’ll welcome you into my meditations by sharing some of these thoughts with you.

Enjoy:

1.Meditations on Thoughts

The first thing that created everything was thought. Creation could not have happened without the ability to think. Our thoughts can thus create worlds, and we should master them to ensure they only create good worlds for us.

2.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence/God as Our Father and Mother

As the mother, she is constantly providing all creatures with everything they need to survive, and as a father, he hardens all creatures by giving them challenging situations that force them to grow into their full potential.

3.Meditations on Suffering

We suffer not because of our experiences but because of our thoughts regarding our experiences. A thoughtless person – if he exists – seldom suffers because he focuses on the awareness of the experience instead of what he wants or doesn’t want about the experience.

4.Meditations on The Lack of Inner Peace

We seldom attain inner peace because we are always thinking about the future. We never relax and focus on the now. When we focus on the now, we’ll attain inner peace because the present moment is always okay.

5.Meditations on the Intuition

Ancient folks knew many things without researching. They knew about poisonous, medicinal, and edible plants. They knew about the stars, energy fields, the third eye, how our emotions affect the body, and so on.

Their primary source of knowledge was their intuition. We, the modern people, have lost our intuitive powers because we over-focus on acquiring material possessions. This focus results in the attachment to our possessions hence causing emotions, such as fear and worry, which suppress our intuitive abilities.

6. Meditations on Our Short Term Existence on Planet Earth and What We Must do About It

I just realized that time is flying. Soon we’ll all leave the earth and allow other souls to experience the physical universe. Soon, our bodies we’ll decay, and we’ll be bones. We’ll be gone forever, and we’ll never experience our current life form again.

For this reason, we must appreciate all our moments and everyone in our lives. As well, we must use the only opportunity we have to exploit our physical powers and live to our full potential.

Conclusions

These are some of the things I often think about when I am alone. I believe deep thinking is more reliable in providing us with enlightening knowledge than reading books written by mainstream historians, scientists, and philosophers, whose main aim is to drown us into delusions and prevent us from knowing the TRUTH.
