I Killed My Ego And Now Everything Is Fine (part 1)

There used to be an issue
weighing heavy on my mind,
But then I killed my ego,
and now everything is fine.

Seemed I had to try to relate to
every news story I would find
but then I killed my ego
and now everything is fine.

Seems it wasn't about me at all
Stories I'd read on the Daily Paul
The emotions that they triggered
weren't about me at all
who'd have figured?

Then who were they about?

Who? Who!

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.

pandas?

I JUST DON'T KNOW!

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

pandas aren't your problem man. pandas are your

panda.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

3rd parties, mainly.

I'm not so intent on getting information to the DailyPaulers per se, but more so to their second and third contacts - their 'facebook people' and twitter friends.

Whatever is needed to prevent the riots before they start.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Wow - this might be a running theme in 2014.

part 2 is percolating...

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Seemed that what if all
around about
wondered if all
was all about
random stupid words that rhymed
were worth the time...

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

I REMEMBER THAT!
I was only a little little kid and laughed when it was on TV and they played it!
Made my morning as usual, thanks!

And so you killed your ego

as if it were a blob
You didn't need any outside help
to do your inside job

No longer will your heart hurt?
or will your mind ever bother?
no worries about having the guts
to follow what they ordered?

And now you claim to be free
of self and the pain
until that ego sucker comes
and leaves you in the rain

That's great! Can I call it part 2? I was going to ask someone

/everyone else to write the conclusion to this idea, anyway.

I had to go back and reread it a bunch of times to figure out what the idea I was trying to express was. I think it's about how the personal affronts I have to deal with from time to time don't hurt me so much, but I know that they will hurt others that I know and many more people I'll never meet, really hurt them badly, and that makes me sad and mad, so I have to fight for me to hopefully help them, so it isn't really about me, it's about other victims of the system, as well as the people in the system itself who bring bad mojo their way just for a paycheck or even if they enjoy their little power trips.

Something like that. Again thanks for your words (and my new favorite video to watch on mute)

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Chris...

Namaste!

Thank you for the smile :)

Nice :)

Nah

My ego's too big to fail.

Great poem

I know an individual who has made the "shift" in realizing he is not his ego. He can still think in fact thinks better now, since he's not emotionally attached to his thoughts.

the ego is what makes you an individual

you exist as an individual or you refuse to think and blend in to the collective. which is it?

What makes you think it is an either-or proposition?

Hmmm?

the collective IS what we are

But it's a spiritual collective, not a collective of other egos.

Nice!

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

Ego is not a dirty word

Don't you believe what you've seen or you've heard....

I all seriousness I really liked your poem and agree with it.

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

Admiting you don't know everyting...

opens up an amazing new world of learning opportunities.

Egotism can cause people to be very close minded.

I don't know everything. And

I don't know everything. And I like to think I'm pretty open-minded, generally speaking, and I try to recognize when I'm not.

That's why I'm awesome.

Word.

"True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing."—Socrates

The "Ego" is only a person's Yin. What then is their Yang? A balance must be obtained to be a whole person and not let the "Ego" run wild.

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience"—Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

ego is good.
