Ego is a great impostor. Ego drives us to live in emptiness.
When you are driven by egoist thoughts you have no chance to achieve bliss. You’ll be happy for a second after you have satisfied your ego, but it won’t last. Your mind will suddenly construct another egoist thought to fight for.
The more you grow, the more you become social, educated, cultured, civilized, the more polished ego you got. Then you begin to function from the ego, not from the self. Your essence goes deep inside your unconscious and a false, social construct, your ego, becomes the centre.
Only becoming concious of your self again you’ll be able to achieve freedom. Listen, be aware of your inner child, be pure, be self to achieve bliss and be free.
Will you give yourself the opportunity to find out?
