Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 100: What Is Ego?

Ego, as we use the term, refers to beliefs and ideas we have about ourselves and life.  They define who we think we are and how we describe our individual preferences and opinions.  We would not have identities without Ego, but without understanding Ego and the misuse of that thinking, it can become a curse and a burden, creating self-judgment, shame, anxiety, disappointment, disillusionment, etc.  If we know that our thinking changes, and our thinking about ourselves is within our control and can change, we see that our ideas about the world around us are also variable, and not “right” or “wrong,” but dependent on our state of mind and what thoughts we take seriously.
