No humanbeing can be 100% ego-free. Infact, as I said before, a healthy ego is a must for the benefit of self achievements and for the good of everyone else on this Earth. But, we must strike a healthy balance, so that we don't hurt others or forget that others exist and that they have their lives, opinions and dreams too. We must always remember that people are different and we must respect that. I have come across so many people (in my own circle) who have looked down upon others who are not so 'able' as they are...and people who have helped those in need and spewed it on their faces for years...and people who have told me that I'd be nothing if not for them. Now there's no way I can ask those people to read this or some great book on Ego and discipline themselves...cos their ego refuses to even listen to someone like me. I guess controlling your ego should come naturally to you...it's not something that someone else can help you do. Inner peace should be developed by you yourself. When you have achieved that state of a healthy balance, you have the most powerful weapon of all times - Inner Peace. Then you'll be content in any situation and with any beast that comes across you...money and other materialistic needs won't rule your life...you're not fragile anymore. Cos now you have controlled your own enemy within you, hence external challenges become alot easier to deal with.
So have you realised that you have a sceret enemy? Are you working on being a better person? Have you ever let your ego control you to a state that it hurt somebody else badly? Have you ever thought about it? Cos some people don't even stop to think what they are doing to others...they are just driven by their own secret enemy until it's too late for them to recover from it. Young or old, if you smile at your ego and tell it to rest for a while, alot of personal problems and this world's major issues would cease to exist. From using a harsh word that leaves a deep scar in someone's heart, to terrorism that kills alot of innocents, the reason behind all those acts is the Ego. Humans have conquered alot of things over the centuries but we are still fragile when it comes to our Ego. It's a power struggle that need to be abandoned. I know, it's much easier said than done, but it's not impossible to achieve at all. Cos often I have let my ego rule me, but not so much these days...while I haven't conquered it altogether, lately I realise that I'm at peace with even the cruelest person that I'd come across...to me that's pure bliss. So when was the last time you let your secret enemy win?
Have a good one folks!
