The ego is not ‘wrong’

Thoughts & quotes from Sir David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. & Susan Hawkins

Q: Is the ego ‘wrong’?

A: The problem with the ego is not that it is wrong; it is just that it is limited and distorted. To conceive of the ego as an enemy is to become polarized, bringing forth conflict, guilt, anger, and shame. Positionalities support the ego. By enlarging context, opposites are transcended and problems are dissolved. Humility removes the ego’s underpinnings of judgmentalism, positionality, and moralizing. In Reality, there can no longer be opposites any more than there can be winners or losers.
The Eye of the I, ch. 12, pg. 244

  1. Eternal Love being expressed threw our form feels like butterflies dancing, Oh Dr and Susan Thank you for the service and commitment for which words cannot convey.

  2. So true! I just covered this in TtLoC today. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve read Doc saying this. Poignant reminders to be understanding of myself as my ego is a remnant of my animal inheritance to be transcended with Power, not an enemy to be vanquished with force.

    Thanks, Susan!
