Ego

the 'I' 
stops at nothing 
always has a point to prove
desirous to compete
with everyone for everything 
one cardinal assumption
'I can't go wrong'
surfaced then 
is the collision of ego
minefield of grudges
embedded deep 
to the layers of thought process
puffed up with pride of knowledge 
materialistic ostentation
or singing own glory
even propogated charity
subtle 
but 
sure
the life-force facing
stiff resistance from ego-force
pushing
self-luminous 
eternal I 
into obscurity 
for I-thoughts firmly rooted 
on the pedestal of dark ignorance 
self-intoxicating
nourished by a 
' I am superior' syndrome
ever in the mind
aware though
today's death is two days
past, tomorrow 
crucifixion is a possibility 
through self-enquiry 
knowing who am I 
and surrender in psyche
for the goodness 
and godliness

    • Thanks a bunch! The most important stumbling block towards a ‘ true eternal we’ ..Ego blocks also our SQ( spiritual quotient) , may it stay away to the farthest possible yard! Blessed times!

    Great poem. Ego resists truth because it fears it’s own death. Now if only we would realize we are not our egos!

    • True Gilda, ego resists truth ..well said . The resistance comes due to dark ignorance in knowing ‘who am I’ . A self-enquiry with practice will reveal the truth , the true texture of ‘ eternal I’ , coupled with a surrender to ultimate truth in psyche ..’ I’ may slowly but steadily pave the way for the ‘ eternal I’ thanks a bunch , bless you!
