You cannot eradicate the ego, because you need it for survival here on Earth. It is a tool, nothing more. Just remember that your are not your ego.
Education is the key.

The ego and a healthy dose of narcissism are necessary for survival. If there is one thing I can't stand are low self esteem cases. And I'm tired of people confusing confidence with arrogance. The people that usually do have low self esteem.
Rather than nitpicking at the different angles i think we need to focus more on the ego itself and ways to overcome it. The ego is responsible for every conspiracy every wrong everythig negative about us and our world. its time to say goodbye to it and work on ways to take ego out of the equation. many masters have done this now we have to evolve and do it also...or we are all doomed!
many masters have done this
There is the key! You, me and the masters have done it (maybe). You expect the rest of mankind to become enlightened? In a thousand years! That would be like trying to teach a cat not to chase mice or like weaning a horse off of grass! It ain' gonna happen because it is firmly in the genes!
It would be like trying to trying to teach someone not to be afraid when the tiger attacks, or not to be emotional when you lost a friend or to forget the sex drive, hehe!
In a thousand years, in the mean time, life goes on.... :LOL:
I think what you have illustrated is why the ego is actually quite a bad thing because it creates limiting beliefs about what you can and cannot do
