How do the MIND, Ego, and Enlightenment play with each other?
TO start off with your mind, the mind is shaped by accepting something. Whatever you have accepted so far, consciously or subconsciously, has shaped your mind. And when you accept something, you are also rejecting something! “I am tall, short, dark, fair, fat, slim, his son, her mom, whatever.” You have just accepted this.
Whatever this world has taught us, we accepted it. We have never put a question mark on it. Now when it comes to accepting things, there are two paths: “ME” and “YOU”.
All the things related to “I, me, and myself” are called EGO, which is the root cause of the problem. Patting yourself on the back for all your achievements or crying out loud for all the miseries you have—both come under the radar of EGO.
