The Ego is a confusing paradox. Many are in agreement that ego was bad, that it destroyed creativity and happiness, that they knew plenty of toxic egomaniacs who had wrecked themselves. But they still think Ego is important.
"One does not need to be an egotistical maniac to be successful.
This is one of the most misleading and destructive myths in all of Western culture."
It starts where our notion of ourselves and the world grows so strong that it begins to distort the reality which surrounds us.
The ego has then succeeded in completely separating us from the world.
It is a deep and continuous connection to the world around us. The Ego disconnects us from reality, stifling creativity.
