Six Ways to Eliminate Ego

Practical tools for eliminating ego:

1. Claiming our ‘undesirable’ parts as parts of ourselves that have lost their ‘song’.

2. Releasing resentment against the pace of life. Our resentment indicates that ego wishes to keep control.

3. Living a surrendered life that knows that the folly of others should be observed (but not engaged) as the mirrors of areas within ourselves where we need to express the song of self.

4. Relinquishing all need to define ourselves and to be understood.

5. Ruthlessly eliminating the focus on what is not the way we want it to be – this only increases the illusion of lack.

6. Contemplating deeply the meaning of the great truth: “Nothing can ever be truly obsolete.”

      Thank you for your comment Charles. These six steps are only a sample of ways to work with elimination of the ego – it serves us well as a means of survival and is pretty tricky at attempts to maintain its control in order to do so. So much so, that we feel we are dying if we try to free ourselves of our ego mind. “Silencing of the Mind”, a technique taught by Almine and mentioned in books (Handbook for Healers, A-Z section here) and online courses (Revisiting the Labyrinth here), is one in which we free ourselves of the illusion of 24/7 time and securing the additional benefit of silencing of the ego or ‘monkey mind’. It feels so silent when this is achieved (because we are so accustomed to the constant chatter of the ego/monkey mind) that the silence can be deafening. We’ll also make a post of the technique in the very near future.

      Blessings,

    This excerpt from the soon to be released, “The Sacred Breaths of Arasatma,” illuminates the concept of the egoic self:
    “The egoic self is an arbitrary reference point within the vastness of
    our eternal being, from which we choose to experience the discovery
    of ourselves. Our familiarity with a specific reference point has created
    the false impression that we are that specific point of view, rather than
    the limitlessness of our true being. But each day can be lived from
    whatever reference point we choose in order to experience ourselves.
    We change the reference point by changing our attitudes and focus.”

    Very interesting and engaging, as usual. Thank you Almine…
    My question here is what does it mean to not ‘express one’s song’ and how does one do that, really?

      Thank you for the question. Expressing ‘one’s song’ can be described as living our highest possible truth, as we know it to be, to the best of our ability in the present moment, which is all that really exists. We each hold a particular uniqueness or nuance which can be likened to our own particular song or frequency, as would instruments in a symphonic orchestra. If one note is held too long (by holding on to illusions, beliefs, perceptions or through lack of fluidity) or is not played at all (not expressed) then the symphonic harmony of Life is also not expressing fully.
