"The ego is out to kill you." Chris Moon
The ego is a fragile construct of the mind. It is created by a helpless infant who sees its environment as hostile. In tribal societies all over the planet, they had an initiation process that was designed to kill the childish ego and to have this person be reborn into its adult responsibilities within that society. We have no such process in our society so the ego rules the psyche all of our lives. But the ego is insecure by nature and wreaks havoc on our lives. Time to kill the little bugger.
