Being Egoless is a choice, a necessitate sacrifice of personal gain for the benefit of greater means.
The human ego may seem inevitable to some. It can be like a blanket that drapes over us in the midst of times.
However, all of our egos can be altered.
The majority of people who are egotistical, are this way because it has been taught into them that egotism is the only way to achieve survival.
Unfortunately, our world thrives off and promotes selfishness.
Why do you think there is usually no monetary reward for helping the poor or cleaning the environment?
Charities to help others are usually volunteer based because we’ve been conditioned to exercise action that only really benefits ourselves.
Ego makes us think that life is all about ourselves and those who are egotistical usually try to fulfil the void via external objects.
Egotistical people don’t tend to see themselves as part of the collective and try to dominate everything around them for the benefit of their own personal gain.
The video linked to this write up explains in a bit more detail how human ego is certainly one of the biggest destroyers of our planet. Remove ego, and then we’ll be at one with nature.
we can finally graduate from the School of Hard Knocks
I know we often want it happy and positive, but that’s just not where much of humanity is. Many of us are overwhelmed with pain, undigested sadness, unexpressed anger, unseen truths. This is where we are at, as a collective. So we have two choices. We can continue to pretend it’s not there, shame and shun it in ourselves and others, distract and detach whenever possible. Or we can face it heart-on, own it within ourselves, look for it in others with compassion, create a culture that is focused on authenticity and healthy emotional release. If we continue to push it all down, we are both creating illness and delaying our collective expansion. But if we can just own the shadow, express it, release it, love each other through it, we can finally graduate from the School of Heart Knocks and begin to enjoy this magnificent life as we were intended. Pretending the pain isn’t there just embeds it further. Let’s illuminate it instead. —Jeff Brown

In Ancient times, The Creator wanted to hide something from humans until they were ready to see.
The Creator gathered all the animals and sought their advice.
"I want to hide something special from the humans until they are really ready for it, it is the realization that they create their own reality."
The Eagle said: “Give it to me. I will take it to the highest mountain and keep it there.” The Creator replied: “One day, the humans will conquer the highest mountain, and find it.”
The Salmon said: “Give it to me. I will take it to the deepest ocean and keep it there.” The Creator replied: “One day, the humans will explore the deepest depths of the ocean, and find it.”
The Buffalo said: “Give it to me. I will bury it in the heart of the great plains and keep it there.” The Creator replied: “One day, humans will rip open the earth, and find it there.”
All were stumped until Little Grandmother Mole who lives within the heart of Mother Earth and see with her spiritual eyes and not physical eyes spoke up:
“Why don’t we hide it inside them? That is the last place they will look.”
The Creator replied in an instant: “It is done.” ~ Sicangu Lakota Oyate ~ (An Old Sioux Legend)
Within each of us is Great Spirit's Gift, It is our knowingness. When we meditate our Spirit connects us with the hearts of all that is. It is up to us to remember that we create our own reality by what we choose to feel within our own heart. When we spread our wings and let go of all that binds us and give thanks for the many blessings of today we are transformed and see with our Spiritual eyes...
