Ego changes ideology, changes our perceptions. The salient point is that the ego changes our ideologies, therefore it changes us and how we live our lives. How we see the world through our egos will never be the same as if we’re going it alone. Without the ego, our lives will be more successful, balanced, and fair.
The more we use our ego, the more it will continue to alienate us from our lives, the more it will make us confrontational. The ego gives us false hope, a false sense of security. If used continually it will make us narcissistic, where we think we’re the best, where we think we can solve every problem, where we’re always right.
Those who don’t use their egos have become the outsiders in the world. Ideologies are a set of doctrines or beliefs that form the basis of an economic, political, or other system and is something we need to correct, because without correct will interfere in our lives and our relationships.
Ideologies shape who we become, our core beliefs and that’s okay as long as we don’t have the ego. It appeals to those who in challenging times don’t feel confident in themselves, in their understanding of their lives.
Ideologies without the ego means we will struggle less in the longer-term, without the ego our lives will work out, we will be more successful, with the ego we will have no control over outcomes, or who we eventually become. The ego will control us.
With the ego, the universe also knows we will eventually fail, even though through our egos we continue to believe we will be successful. The universe isn’t wrong.
