What exactly is the “ego”? Why does it exist?

What exactly is the “ego”? Why does it exist? In recent years “ego” has become an accepted term, coined to separate our consciousness into essentially one of two parts. The second part is our true selves. “Ego” defines the part of us that is the front or show, the veil we put forward to conform into accepted norms and what we think we should reveal… The ego collectively is the wall we have constructed to hide behind to keep ourselves safe (maybe it evolved as we did with war or from those who used and controlled others). Most often you are connecting and interacting with someone else’s ego. We all know when we are experiencing the true essence of another. The ego is simply a subconscious defense mechanism. The ego protects us. The world revolves around ego because none us feel or believe who we really are is safe or worthy. We guard our authenticity and truth behind this wall, and only reveal it, when we know we are safe and accepted… When we resonate from a place of unconditional love and authenticity others feel safe to do the same. © jodihealy.com – if you like this please share, someone else may too
