Eliminate the ego by letting go self-esteem that fed on egoism

Self-esteem and the ego is the two sides of a coin.

This delusive existence of the non-existing 'coin' born out of ignorance and egoism, is being fed, maintained and empowered by egoism and ignorance, and vice versa, where egoism and ignorance is being fed, maintained and empowered by the delusive existence of this 'coin'.

It attaches onto and identifies with qualities of names and forms to be existing and be identifying as this is 'I'.

By getting rid of self-esteem, is indeed eliminating the ego. To eliminate this 'coin', the mind needs to know what it is, and stops feeding it.

The ego feels superior, self-important, existence/love/respect deserving, proud and arrogant, high confident, useful, worthy and meaningful when the self-esteem is on a high level.

"I know something. I can do something. I achieve something. I am needed by some others. I can give and contribute to some others. I am loved, acknowledged and appreciated by some others. I am superior. My existence is useful, meaningful and deserving."

The ego feels inferior, non-important, existence/love/respect undeserving, low confident, useless, worthless and meaningless when the self-esteem in on a low level.

"I don't know much. I can't do much. I can't achieve something. I am not needed by some others. I can't give and contribute to some others. I am unloved, unacknowledged and unappreciated by some others. I am inferior. My existence is useless, meaningless and undeserving."

It's not about restlessly balancing the level of self-esteem, so that the ego can be maintaining at a 'just right' position influenced by a not too high and not too low level of self-esteem.

The modification of the mind can be free from such unnecessary suffering of restlessness due to attachment, identification, desire of craving and aversion, judgment and expectation towards the presence and absence/possession and non-possession of different qualities of names and forms, to be determined as this is 'I', where there is no 'I' existing in all and everything.

It's about letting go the self-esteem that was being developed under the influence of worldly egoistic social/cultural/educational/religious/spiritual/political/commercial thinking, belief, values and practice, that fed on egoism of attachment, identification, desire of craving and aversion, judgment and expectation towards the qualities of names and forms, where self-esteem doesn't need to be there at all, that determine the 'unnecessary value of existence' of a delusive existence of a non-existing 'I', as 'good', 'good enough' or 'not good enough', which influences the state of the mind, that influences the actions/reactions and the consequences of actions/reactions, which affects all and everything that the mind comes in contact with.

The existence of an impermanent selfless decaying physical body with the function of a selfless perceptive intellectual thinking mind that is subject to selfless impermanent changes influenced by the law of nature, doesn't need to be 'determined' by a delusive existence of a non-existing 'I', that is being determined by the egoism of attachment, identification, desires of craving and aversion, judgment and expectation towards qualities of names and forms that are all subject to impermanence and selflessness, that are being determined and empowered by the worldly egoistic social/cultural/educational/religious/spiritual/political/commercial thinking, belief, values and practice.

Any kind of 'empowerment ideas and workshops' targeting on any type of empowerment in the world in order to develop and boost the sense of self-esteem, self-importance, pride, worthiness, usefulness, meaningfulness, superiority and existence/love/respect deserving in the minds, is indeed deriving from ignorance and egoism, as well as empowering the ignorance and egoism.

The selfless minds don't need to be empowered. There is no 'existence of an individual being' that needs to be empowered. The selfless mind doesn't need to be loved, to be acknowledged, to be appreciated, to feel confident, to feel proud, to feel deserving, to feel meaningful, to feel useful, to feel worthy, to feel existing. It doesn't need to be 'connected' with 'all the others', as it's never separated from all and everything that exist under the manifestation of Maya, to be inter-supporting and inter-affecting one another.

It's the delusive existence of a non-existing 'I' that looks forward to be empowered, to be loved, to be acknowledged, to be appreciated, to feel confident, to feel proud, to feel deserving, to feel meaningful, to feel useful, to feel worthy, to feel existing, to be 'connected' with one another.

This delusive existence of a non-existing 'I' is the one that suffering from all kinds of mental and emotional suffering when it doesn't get the empowerment, love, acknowledgment, appreciation, confidence, pride, deserving treatment/result, the sense of meaningfulness, usefulness, worthiness and existence, and connection/connectivity that it needs, to be existing as this is 'I'.

It's about the selfless modification of the mind that is 'ignorantly' being influenced by ignorant egoistic worldly thinking, belief, values and practice needs to be free from being influenced by ignorant egoistic worldly thinking, belief, values and practice. That's all.

Inquire the truth of everything.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Be free, be peaceful, be happy.

Om shanti
