I apposed my ego since birth as my own built in device as my INHERITANCE.

Suppressing the ego won't work, that's only more ego coming in the back door. Enough to realize that who you are cannot be known by the mind, but you are not ego because ego is an activity, not an actual thing. It is conditioning that began at birth, kind of like our inheritance from the world.
It takes a little courage at first to decline the "status quo" but after a while it becomes natural and feels like home.
