We all love to hide our true feelings towards our physical death and therefore also our ego-death. At some point in our life and time, our physical body is not supporting us anymore to achieve our upcoming goals, so why should we continue at that time?
Well, today, I do not want to philosophize about our physical death. This article is about the possibility of our ego-death within our current form.
What does the internet say about the ego-death?
Wikipedia writes the following:
“The ego-death is a complete loss of subjective self-identity.”
Therefore, after the death of ego, true objectiveness is a possibility.
The great philosopher and spiritual teacher Eckart Tolle quotes about the ego:
“The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions. The work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, person and family history. Also belief systems, and often nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.” – Eckart Tolle
So, most individuums do not live the “truth”, and therefore, the only certainty that exists if an individuum has not remembered his true being is a subjective reality.
What is the intention and illusion of our ego-construct?
Our ego-construct wants to stay alive as long as possible. Our mind is a great mechanism, if understood correctly, and at the same time, we still have a lot of outdated subconscious programs running.
For example, the fear of getting killed by a wild animal. To an extent, it helps us to survive because of the stress released to push our bodies beyond our limits, and to another extent, it hurts us because, in harmless situations, we release exactly the same stress.
This means that a lot of our inherited subconscious programs and experiences from very early times in our development as an individuum helped us out in the survival process tens of thousands of years ago. But today in our digital world, we funnily enough still act like we did tens of thousands of years ago.
For instance, meeting strangers can be considered a danger by our internal system. Also, a common challenge is the fear of animals that can release the same level of stress as the frightening animals tens of thousands of years ago.
We humans are just afraid of stress. It is as simple as that.
What can we all do?
First of all, we have to accept that we have our ego-construct and that we are led by fear and inner fights before we are able to transcend our ego into a more stable characteristic environment.
The objective truth is that releasing our fear of ego-death plays the biggest role in a peaceful inner world. Therefore, it is essential for a higher state of frequency and consciousness to transcend the ego-construct and release all limited beliefs.
Can we transcend to an ego-free environment?
What is our current status quo?
Our ego loves to talk, and for most humans, something like this is deeply imprinted in our DNA: “You have to survive, because you cannot be certain that there is a reality beyond your current life.”
Therefore, we feel forced to do horrible things to ourselves, just to survive a little bit longer.
After we die, our ego-construct also dies, and that is the biggest fear of our ego. From a survival point of view, our society reflects that behavior.
So, in my opinion:
“As humans, we still need time to fully grow beyond our outdated ego-construct.”
Also, masters of life say that personal goals are always a part of the ego and we all have personal, financial, or business goals. That is one of the reasons we would never fully leave the ego circle.
Luckily, today, we see more and more individuals that are aware and care about a purpose beyond their individual life purpose.
In the first place, this is a collective purpose for the well-being of our planet Earth and humanity.
However, does that illustrate that soon we are free from our ego behaviors?
“The moment you become aware of your ego, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist.” – Eckart Tolle
Awareness seems the key for the process beyond our ego-construct, and our current frequency of fear holds us back from experiencing a reality beyond.
3 peaceful ideas of ego-death.
First idea: Do not pursue the ego-death.
In our society, it seems like a lot of people pursue the death of their ego. Even more common is that people are sure that they are freed from their ego.
As long as we think our ego really exists, we will never be able to fully transcend ourselves.
Second idea: Nothing exists as it seems.
We are easy to believe that we only live in one reality and that is our current life with our physical body. We limit ourselves to stay inside the box of our physical body. But more and more people are experiencing out-of-body experiences, sudden enlightenment, or near-death experiences.
We also should be open to the possibility of alternative realities (a dream is one, for example). Yet, in our materialist world, we are still so easy to convince the opposite.
Our ego is an impressive brainwasher, and because we only see the worlds past, it is almost impossible to believe in the invisible.
Third idea: Become friends with your ego.
A very good idea is to become friends with your ego. In other words, the goal is that you understand the motives of your ego, and later on, you have the free will to act from an ego perspective or not.
We cannot always consider the ego to be the devil in our “mind” universe, because when we start to do so, there is no way to jump out of the illusion.
So, what can we really do?
We can be thankful, authentic and enjoy our journeys.
