The spiritual, mystic, and Buddhist perspective on the ego

  • Buddhists believe that the ego is an incorrect conception of the self. It comes to you at birth and integrates your image, identity, nationality, passions, culture, education, and beliefs. We become attached to these processes, they hide your authenticity.
  • The ego is a false identity that brings suffering because it subjects you to whatever you lack.
  • Eckhart Tolle believed that people are overly attached to their thoughts, fears, needs, and desires. He believes that the ego causes suffering.
