Ego is nothing more than this.
Its the ideas you have in your head about who you are and the world you live in.
All your opinions..likes and dislikes and emotions.
You would need to go back to factory settings to get rid of it.
That's what having a bit of enlightenment means.
When you remember everything is actually BS.
We could all be part of a matrix style super computer, nothing more than bits of data, so really having an opinion about anything would be irrelevant...
Even if we aint in the matrix, we all know we will all die one day and revert back to dust...so that really makes most of what we think irrelevant...most of us will not be remembered in 100 years and definatley not in a thousand years...and even if we are remembered...so what...I certainly dont care anyway.
You come to the conclusion that none of this matters...the only thing then that makes sense is right now.
So you make the most of right now...and thinking too much about everything is not making the most of now.
Take a walk instead, get some fresh air...Thats what life is really about, nothing, just living now.
Remember we and everything else are made up of atoms...supposedly an atom isnt even a solid object...so if we are made of things that are not really made of anything..then how can we be real?
Cr4p like this dont worry me...Im not bothered if im a bit of data and not even a "real" thing...I couldnt care less...I dont buy this heaven and hell stuff...people who do are some of the biggest ego's going..as they think they deserve to go upstairs because they are better than others etc...even that idea of heaven is an ego trip...

Oh and you might see me on the street, judge me by how I walk or dress and think that guy is full of ego...and you might be right..you might be wrong...i might just be acting my way through life, like everyone else...the difference is I know Im acting.

I must respectfully disagree with you on this point as there are both humble and manipulative individuals of any belief, god or no god.

I would argue that many men are easily manipulated by women as well. Also, men are very emotional too. They are simply more conditioned to subdue them in order to fit the social norm of their dominance. It is not egotistical to feel emotion as that is one of the aspects that defines our unique human experience. Ego, in this reality, is also another aspect that defines our experience and that is okay, though as many would say, moderation is key and what we have in our current society is an over abundance of ego. Human beings no longer communicate with full efficiency because they are limited to exchanging ideas through an "ego facade," so to speak in order to fit the conditioned social norms.

I do not have time now to write more but on a final note, there is no "true" path to enlightenment. Every human is unique thus every path will be different.

Real man is what woman need to find. Men who will tell you the truth. Unforuntley in Western Society that's quite hard to do because of all the things Goverment gives us that directly feeds our Ego, as their way to dumb us all down which is why most men are still 'boys' because they haven't grown up yet.


Well maybe luckily for me I have found a real man. He tells me the truth.
I do not care for the ridiculous fake mainstream man whose only concerns might be his car, hair or house.. I totally agree. Western society has SO much to answer for in messing us up..

s/f BTW

Yes castration should do the trick. You can't change the world but you can change yourself.


Castration... If men and even women were castrated then the only way of reproducing would be in test tubes. Imagine the mad extent of designer babies then. You can change the world if you change yourself. The only constant in life is change..



I mean how much does an average woman spend on clothing compared to a guy etc...women have a far greater ego problem than most men..


I agree with you on the average woman. But for myself I have far less clothes than my partner. He quite possibly has the largest wardrobe for a man I have seen lol..

There are over thousands of different religions, all trying to explain the concept of Ego in their way. Some are vastly different than others. It's hard to explain because it's not meant to be explain. Most people who understand it, learned it with help of experimenting with drugs which comes to them through a Universal language because it opens our mind and makes us think in a much more intelligent way. It's sad, there is a TOS against the use of drugs because it's the dooryway and answers to everything about life. But, I have to respect the rules regardless.




The light of a lamp will never shine in you again. The voice of bridegroom and bride will never be heard in you again. Your merchants were the world's important people. By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.

"magic spell"
5331 pharmakeía (from pharmakeuō, "administer drugs") – properly, drug-related sorcery, like the practice of magical-arts, etc.


Your "Christ" isn't Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Saviour.
Your "Christ" is a false anointing, a false spirit.
Do you understand what He is telling you above?




So you're telling me that what I've learned - from a natural plant is black arts? God made everything including plants, so I wouldn't consider that 'black art's and I've never been involved with black arts or any other types of black magic or spells.

And most importantly, I'm not trying to 'tell' anyone anything. I'm simply trying to show them the way towards enlightenment. What they do with it is entirely up to them.

Too bad I couldn't say everything I wanted to say in my post. It would just be far too long. There are many things that I have neglected to mention, and many more that I have come to realize myself. That's where ATS comes in, to help me finish the puzzle to make sense of these things that I cannot do alone.

Men and women are alike more than one will ever realize.

I'll agree with you that every path for humans are unique and each has their own different path. I've come to realize that also and I also realize it's not my responsiblity to help those people see that path because they have to find it on their own and even if I helped them, I would only make matters worse.

Women...I gotta say I am a straight guy..so I like women...I do not like how many, many women behave however, they are on the whole far more materialistic than the typical guy..They are the ones who are targeted with most advertising and commercialism...I mean how much does an average woman spend on clothing compared to a guy etc...women have a far greater ego problem than most men..
In fact behind every great man is a woman...so they say...
But remember what great means in today's world..RICH...you don't get a trophy wife unless you got the money.



Hey there Blackhat. I just want to say I disagree with you on this particular post of yours because that is quite the generalization you make about women. I see just as many men absorbed in materialism as women. I also see plenty of women (as well as men) who have worked past it, or at least understood it as a hindrence to their spiritual development. So in essence, I look at is as an individual issue rather than a men vs. women scenario.

The point I guess I'm trying to convey is that dividing people up into these generalizations seems to be another part of egoism. I'm not faulting you (trust me, I'm most certainly not perfect), I respect your views, I just felt compelled to reply on that.

So, you can't share any of whatever it is that you think you have there.

Okay. Nothing new here. So far, none of you guys have been able to articulate any of whatever that enlightenment stuff is.

WOW!!!!! your dream girl is exactly the kind of a girl I also want....

A girl who is not bored being around with a silent man like me, without conversations.
Who enjoys serenity with me, without conversations.
Who enjoys watching sunset with me, without conversations.
Who enjoys watching greenery with me, without conversations.
Who enjoys watching the beauty of the world with me, without conversations

Although I said I want, It doesn't mean that I desire a GF or a wife. Because for me these days, having a GF or a wife is just a bonus added to my almost perfect life. I just need to become egoless to make this life perfect. No women No Cry

If I could give you Infinite stars and flags, I would!!

Great job for this post!!!

Don't worry brothers. As long as you all have some motivational words, be it wisdom or love, for us. It's more than enough already.

I really enjoy learning from you all

You my friend don't appreciate what little advice others try to give to the best of their ability. There is no 'short answers' to enlightenment or life. In fact, it's not an answer at all it's a state of mind and it's own emotion that cannot be explained. People think love is hard to explain? Enlightenment is even harder.

Uhh, WHAT?!?


Oh dear...hmm, all over the place OP. eHarmony might be a better fit.

Guess I'll try to mention a few things.


Originally posted by TheProphetMark
I wish I could explain it better, but Ego is something that young people cannot understand easily because some people rely on it because they can't accept that their illusion of a life is all a lie because one needs Ego to be happy with themselves, but one can also be happy without Ego.


It's not really about young people. What's this "illusion of a life" business? Your motives for saying so appear, ironic, self-serving.




I'm afraid that it's not my place to tell people because it's something everybody must learn for themselves otherwise I would be interfering with Gods plans with us all and that's not something I wish to do.


Interfering with gods plans huh, I don't see that happening.

Understanding ego, and then simultaneously judging ego...slightly incongruent, possibly.




....I would still be up to my neck in my Ego and living an illusion, partying, having friends, pretending to be 'cool' and what not like any other young adult does.


Heaven forbid OP.
Yeah, might as well add food and water to that list, oh and air.




I love sex, I love women, if given the chance I would sleep with them but if I could pick just ONE woman of my choice, I would never cheat or think of another woman because I would be happy with what I got. Unfortuntely, a lot of woman don't want because I'm unemployed, introverted


You spoke of serial killers and you know who that sounds like?.... Ted Kaczynski.




....and most importantly? Because I have a hearingaid stuck in my ear and that - understanding from their perspective assuming they don't understand ego - it HURTS their ego and that's why they don't think twice about me - and that's why I'm introverted and rather not have friends because I don't trust anybody.


o.o

Dude, if you want a women that is as wise as you, a hearingaid will be the last of her worries since she'll just see it as an impermanence issue...or something.

Hey, be creative ... do whatever you should do. I can only wish you all the best and please update us if you are successful, my friend.

You think I haven't thought of that? That's exactly what I'm waiting for. A woman as wise as me. I'm not going to pick the woman, she's going to pick me if anything at all.

If you wore a hearingaid, you would understand exactly what I mean. Do yourself a favor, go buy and one and wear it and pretend to be hard of hearing and tell me how successfull you are at finding a woman compared to not wearing one. If they accept you afterwards, that's the kind of woman you really want to take home afterwards. If it wasn't for my hearing loss, I wouldn't have figured out Ego as quickly as I did - I was an aithest then and I almost became a killer because of it. Believe me, I understand them more than you will ever realize it.

As for the rest of your post. You're quite the troll aren't you?

You guys are taking what I'm trying to say in my post in an entire different way. My expectations of the woman of my dreams is part of being enlightenment and the reason why I can't find that woman is because too many of them are ego driven.

Don't be such a troll guys. ATS isn't the place I would be looking for a woman. Trust me. I'm not even looking for a woman at the moment because I'm simply waiting for her to come to me first.

Love the trolls
You guys really make me laugh.

you're well on your way, the small ego-deaths are important, what is enlightenment? people think you have to work towards it, sacrifice, for through movement through our space there is expenditure of energy, and thus, sacrifice, from others, from the system, for yourself. Its all the same.

Ego death leads to expanded consciousness, you are no longer thinking in one frame of reference. But you are still on a path. Enlightenment is the way without a path. I have seen many people come on here and post about enlightenment. And it becomes its own quarrel of mind vs mind. Its as if we made up that word, to try to define what it is we are seeking for ourselves, the very root of our existence, what we believe is missing, we must now work to regain it. Every soul comes to this line of thought once we realize the meagerness of everyday life, and all its suffering attached.

But we are it, all that takes is a change of mind, but we must fight against the information structures built upon us. Our genetics, our programming. There is an essence of life that ties all those around us, to us, in a way that is almost impossible for us to comprehend, we can only ponder it. Enlightenment is the freedom from this system of things, to be able to see the everything for what it truly is, because you are freed from this illusion. You have to experience it, and just as our mind flitters about, this state is note everlasting, but we can cultivate to exist within it more and more. I doubt any of us here have truly tasted all the fruits it has to bear. But we have the ability to ponder it, to reach for it, and to create in our space a place for it to manifest.

What I see are the drops of water, the sprinkled mist before the raging waters of the coming spiritual hurricane that will once again bring balance to us. But its just another chapter turned in a rather large book.

Everybody in this world is one and the same and it's the ego that seperates that away from us all. This is why people talk about others behind their back when they have nothing better to say - they'll make up stories, rumors and so on and forth to maintain their social status in life to make people believe that they know what they are talking about when in reality they're the real idiot. The same idiots are the circle jerks who let's these people talk the way without any moral obligation to stick up for others.




Ego is something that young people cannot understand easily because some people rely on it because they can't accept that their illusion of a life is all a lie because one needs Ego to be happy with themselves.


Pot calling the kettle black a bit. But you do prove to have some introspection.

You're misappropriating supposed "enlightenment" and "life" and having less than either, hardly a reason to make a thread. A hot mess at best.

So why the grandstanding?

What's more a problem than the hearing aid is thinking it's more significant than being employed...that kind of liability no adult is going to want to be around, and you're choosing that.

And she'll be wondering if her jeans make her butt look big.....suppose she'll have to give that up pretty fast huh.

Hey, Im glad you have found such an easy path toward enligtenment, its the one that didnt work for me !

The Path to Enlightenment = Study, meditation, breathing sacred breaths, service to humanity and once alignement of the subtle bodies take place, then you are on the path and the higher mind of intutition, divine love / wisdom start to become active / awaken, or should I say then we start to precieve glimmers of light from the higher realms, we become aware of what has always been, we only need to become aware and agreed an ascended Master will then observe the light in the aura and then Divine blessings manifest, the quickening and awakening.

Hmmm.. An Enlightened being has his Ego hurt and calling people names? A simple 'No, I wasn't trying to get an easy lay/date' would have sufficed.


I wish you well, just the same, buddy. My apologies if I was mistaken.
