I have a different definition of Ego which makes this post confusing. My interpretation is that the ego cant “get things done”, its not me or my personality. The Ego will only do whatever my minds allows/succumbs to do.
Its like a 3 way communication triangle between the mind, soul, ego. Christians like to call it mind/ spirit/ flesh.
Soul and Ego is in a never ending battle to get the mind to make decisions based on what it is saying. The ego’s desires are as you mentioned, so is the soul.. but the mind is what makes the final decision. Ego and Soul can at any time only do once the go-ahead is given by the mind.
This is the battle. Allow your mind to give in to soul, or ego.
“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.”Deepak Chopra
