Finding Liberation From a Sensitive & Wounded Ego

So what exactly is the Ego and is it really possible tobe freed from its cravings, desires and imaginations? According to Alan Watts, the Ego is nothing more than an illusion. It is the “avatar” or persona that the mind creates in order to deal with the complexities of life. That is not to say that the Ego is not real; rather, it is a creation of our own making which, once acknowledged, can be disengaged. However, that gets a little tricky because the Ego is not going to disengage itself .

In order to “disengage” the Ego, we must learn to disengage from that which created the Ego; namely, the mind. It isn’t that our mind is bad, on the contrary, our mind is capable of far more than we could ever possibly realize, but in order for our mind to work in our own best interests, we must surrender to our higher self, or Spirit. In other words, as we let go of who we think we are and realize our identity as part of the Universe, our Ego fades away and our true Self is liberated. We are freed from self criticism, guilt, shame and a false sense of obligation and restriction. We can finally rest in the Universal flow and live as it was intended.
