Ego is neccessary in Life

Last time, I used to get frustrated with the limits of my ego and how it partially blocked my soul from having more influence in my life. Being confused and unguided, I was constantly wondering why the ego was even necessary. Ego made a person too proud I thought. I spoke with my mom about it, and she gave me an idea of why we needed our egos. It wasn't the epiphany I desired, however.

But, after reading some advices from Maria Duval, answer came to me and I realized truly why our ego's were (are) necessary to our lives. So here I am sharing with you my feelings in this post.

It may sound silly to you who already have your own theories, but then again it's only my personal revelation, open for you to read to glean new info - if you want to.

Why we need ego

One way to describe the ego is this; a slate on which the soul learns about the physical, living world. When we die, this full slate of ideas and lessons learned in our lives gets passed on for the soul to examine and learn from. Without the ego, there would be no point in the physical world.

The soul evolves by applying lessons learned in life, so without it's counterpart, the ego, the soul could not evolve. When one considers this, he or she may realize that this evolution of the soul is not that different from human evolution, for in human evolution (as far as I know) one evolves by learning new ideas as time goes on, then reproducing.

The product (the baby) will be a being with these physical/mental lessons implanted directly into their genes. When you compare this with soul evolution, the "baby" will be the soul's next human shell in it's next life.

Yes, we need ego for the continuation of life. Our humanity.

However, too much of ego is detrimental too. Maria Duval says, the key to ego is this to recognise it as a tool by minimising its influence in your life.

Yes, its true that we mess up when our egos are running the show, and when it becomes domineering over us.

So, the goal should be: control your ego; rather than letting ego controlling you.

Hope you like this post.
