Ego is legion, demons inside us, an army of demons triying to use you and your energy to survive.
Ego divides in seven heads, wich explains the seven demons Crist expeled from Mary Magdalene, or the seven demonds Crist expeled from the wild man and threw them to the pigs.
Its heads are the famous seven sins from christianity:
As sons of god we have an escence of our father inside, wich we have to find and encarnate. To do it we must observe ourselves and know ourself and eliminate every thoughts and actions coming from the ego. That reminds me what says at the Temple of Delphos (or something like that) "Know yourself, and you will have knolegde of god and the whole universe".
We are asleep, we live like machines, CONTROLED. People live and die and at the end they didnt even know the purpose of their existence. We must wake up and think for ourselves, not what the ego tells us to do. Eliminate what controls you and find out who you really are, no matter what religion you practice or no.
97% of the thing that comes across our minds is not us, its ego. We must awake our consciousness
and only live the PRESENT wich is the only real thing, the past passed and the future is uncertain.
One example of each head, however millions of examples exist.
Why do we have to watch every good looking girl/guy with the intentions of violating her/him? it even happens when we have a girlfriend/ boyfriend.
Why do you want so much when you can survive with only the necesary? Anything you have stays in the grave in the day of your death... remember that.
Who does that guy think i am? I will kill him. I am the best around here i can do whatever i want, nobody can beat me!.
Screaming at wifes in front of kids, killing people for nothing, like recently in my country a guy stabed another guy for a passager, when the ride only costs around 1 dollar.
Eating more than you are supposed to, taking more than you need (anything, not just food).
Girls keep criticizing each other just by watching their clothes, live your life let other live theirs. People wanting the partner of their neighbors, or the car, etc.
I gotta wake up to go to work, while ego in your head telling you: nah sleep a bit more its nothing, you still have time. Having to do a school job and waiting for the last moment to do it.
