The Labyrinth – Symbolic Depictions of the Ego Super-Structure

 

The most effective way of journeying through the labyrinth of our ego structures is to do so with conscious awareness and presence, because then we can process the psychological material (i.e. dissolve the ego structures and reintegrate our consciousness) as we encounter it. Then, when we finally reach the core of our being and realize our true-Self, we can be confident that we will not relapse back into ego-identification because the ego will have largely been dissolved.

Temporary self-realization is the result of jumping to the core of our being (e.g. through intense will) without dissolving the ego structures. If this occurs, it is only a matter of time before the lure of the ego pulls us back out again, because too many ego structures remain for the Self-realization to be permanent.

Seeking Self-realization before we are ready is unwise because we are seeking freedom from something (i.e. the false-self) that we still require for our development. However, our conditioning can cause us to remain misidentified with the ego-self longer than necessary. So here are a few simple things that we can do to loosen our identification with our ego-self:

  • Don’t take things personally: Let go of any definitions or concepts of yourself as a personal “I” and see yourself as impersonal pure awareness.
  • Forgive everyone and everything: You can’t change what has happened so why hold onto the personal feeling of victimhood?
  • Be selfless: Put other people’s needs ahead of your own and dedicate part of your life to serving or helping others.
  • Be authentic at all times: Don’t put on a different persona for different occasions.
  • Have fewer preferences and opinions; especially about things that don’t really matter.

Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy.

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Kids who are smarter than adults though.
