The True Role of the Ego

‘Gaia is the spirit of nature, it’s another word for the Tao, if you befriend her, she protects you. She will eventually change the world and take it back from humans, because they hurt her and her children, the animals. All equations are balanced in the end, can’t wait really.’ – Stuart Wilde

The ego is actually a very necessary part of the personality

Which one inherits with a body

And when the ego is aligned to support ‘Higher Consciousness’

It is capable of great good

It is not a battle with the ego

It is not about transcending the ego, or conquering it

As the ego cannot be suppressed

And the personality requires the ego to provide a balanced sense of Self

It is about acquiring a better understanding of it’s true role

Which can only be achieved by embracing, befriending, taming

And training the ego

As one would a toddler

For the ego is still seeking one’s attention

So that one may acknowledge it’s presence

The ego requires an ‘inner parenting’

Grooming in preparation of greatness

In order to align correctly

And fulfil it’s true purpose

And the true purpose of the ego

Is to work alongside the spiritual deity

Of supporting higher-consciousness intent, as manifest

In the physical world

By coming from a place of heart-centered Love

One can move beyond the ‘I’, the personal

And when the ego is correctly aligned in this way

From beyond the perspective of the ‘I’

And focused on the unconditional, universal

The transpersonal, spiritual

Humility may also be activated

And humility is a valuable time-saving mechanism

For gratifying the ego, appearing right, being in control, having the last say

Chasing after advertising illusions, status upgrades, mimicking Hollywood role play, (etc)

These are all time-wasting distractions

While planet Earth and her inhabitants are plundered

By unsustainable consumerism, ignorance and war

More and more each day

And while the ego is languishing out of balance

Seduced by the advertising aesthetic and the media

Into supporting the capitalist mentality

That seeks to acquire more and more money/ possessions/ status/ kudos and power

Through competition and dominion

Rather than through co-operation and compassion

It continues to create havoc, misery and pain

Through a polarized perspective of the ‘Self’

Gratification to the exclusion of all else

With no understanding of how this focus

Adversely affects everything around us

We are all part of the macro / microcosm

So we do not operate alone

We are always a part of the whole

We cannot separate ourselves from this

To try to do so, is to operate in denial

However, when ones spiritual wealth comes from within

(Rather than trying to feed it from without)

The ego can support ‘higher-consciousness’ intent

To motivate the will

The will, to will thy divine will, a call to serve

To implement great beneficial change and transformation

As manifest

In record speed

It is a very, very powerful tool of initiation

That can activate the higher will

And when the ego is properly aligned

In accordance with ones divine intelligence

It can achieve truly amazing things

This is the ego’s true role.
