Understanding the ego.

<p style=”margin: 0in 0in 10pt;”><font color=”#000000″ face=”Calibri”>I’ve been contemplating a lot about the ego. I have read “A
New Earth” and Ekhart Tolle has helped me understand something I had no idea
influenced my life to such an extent. I try very hard to recognize it in myself
and those around and not identify their true self by their ego. However, I’ve
found that to be a very difficult challenge. I have found people take advantage
of that, knowing very much that I won’t hate them if they do anything wrong to
me. How can I forgive others by knowing not to identify them by their ego and
simultaneously have them respect me? I am often disheartened when I get angry
or compare myself with others. I have major insecurities and I continuously
compare myself to others. The saddest thing is my terrible habit to compare
myself to my best friend who I believe is extremely beautiful. How can I be
jealous of her beauty when I also know how loving, strong, smart and kind she
is? How can one simply stop comparing and let people simply be, without
labeling them? I find myself having a lot of knowledge of who I am and who
others are, truly and deeply, but I so often still become a part of such an
unconscious mindset. I feel trapped within my head. I want to simply love,
unconditionally, and accept people, and myself, for they really are. </font>

<p style=”margin: 0in 0in 10pt;”><font color=”#000000″ face=”Calibri”>I remember listening to one of Oprah Winfrey’s talks where
she mentioned that once people show you who they are, believe them. So if
anyone betrayed me I should believe it to be who they are. But should I not
consider the ego? Should I not see the ego in them to have been the reason why
they betrayed me and forgive, let go and show them only love? </font>
