Most of the people (including business people, students, people who seeking for spirituality, who`s in psychedelics) every must have stumbled accross the one of the complex question in Philosophy, which 'What is an Ego?'. Yes i know Ego is the primary reason for ones destructive behaviours and emotions.. One can either feel too good or too bad about oneself. People with high self esteem put idealize themselves above all others around them.. in contrast, people with low esteem, put themselves at very bottom of hierachy. Let me explain about my concern (my experience which I perceived as EGO).. the problems that I`ve been facing by the EGO.. If I know something better (or rare stuff), whether it`s about health, psychology, technology, I brag it to others who aren`t really aware of that. If someone makes me angry, uncomfortable I cant leave them just like that In an argument, i feel like shit if I`m not able to defeat back.. If I achieve positive progress in my life, my ego craves for more progress, more success (FEELING MISERABLE AND UNSATISFIED).. So, as i mentioned above, those are the 'ONLY' proper definition of the EGO?? or ego is also means wishes?? desire to eat, desire to live longer, desire to have sex, desire to own more possession even desire to achieve higher level of understanding in Philosophy, desire to attain Enlightenment?. What are the differences between desires (wishes) and the EGO? can one completely diminish ones ego FOREVER? or we can able to kill the ego only in specific parts of our LIFE? Please give me clear, yet simple explanation for better understaning about the EGO? I`ve been watching many youtube videos, reading important articles throughout, yet I can`t differentiate between two poles DESIRES and the EGO.. which is better, and which has a lesser quality of self-sabotaging?
