If you limit the meaning of ‘Ego’ to mere inflation of your actual ‘self’ then In that case proper justice to its expansive essence shall go as missed. For not being able to pierce your limited though logical understanding too; should be considered as ‘Ego’. The difference between intelligent and wise comes out of a very thin line that matters as diverse as two solar galaxies apart. Remember the meaning and procedure of ‘sanitization’ grossly differs between a house wife and a research lab working upon life saving drugs. To understand the same in light of the subtlest subject – ‘Ego’, layered in number of sheaths; this article is the most needful subject for people who want ‘mere success’ and do not want to leave any room for leakages; even at ‘nano scale’.
We today exist in a very fast moving world where each day there is a vast addition to life sciences… and those newly acquired addition then further impress upon our realities of life. Brought and educated in 1990’s (or for that matter men and women of any age) shall acquire their understanding upon rationales established during their respective brought up and education that include basics like eating habits, clothing, responding to various situation of life. When any generation concludes with its resolve towards any situation; it does so upon the basis of its times… and they are never wrong considering the facts of their times. For instance the generation of 1970’s considered an irrational freedom as its way of life in comparison with today’s generation that is absolutely career conscious; yet bindas (joyful).
The need for writing the above lines was to establish that when our understanding is not able to transcend the facts of the present times and we attempt to conclude with our judgment based upon, may be, rationale understanding of our times… that situation too shall be considered as… us acting under the effects of ‘Ego’. Whether at ‘workplace’ or at ‘home’ (in light of a family where marriages are not confined amongst homogeneous clans) people of different age groups, people with totally different upbringing, people from different subcontinents form as a ‘team’. Such diversity shall always experience a vast variety of justified ‘truth’ in light of people’s understandings. In such situation no one person can acclaim as ‘the only right one’.
A genuine inability to comprehend each other’s situation shall easily make way for resentful conflict amidst finest of the people working together; anywhere. Working together in teams; though none shall confirm their ‘self’ under the shadow of ‘Ego’ but the fact is that… undesirably each one shall come under its spell. It’s like all innocents unintentionally and unknowingly working against the interest of one another. Remember the meaning and procedure of ‘sanitization’ grossly differs between a house wife and a research lab working upon life saving drugs. And the same goes for the most subtle part of human existence i.e. ‘Ego’. Taking a thick stock of it easily makes passage for adequate fog to penetrate and pull the aspirant from the corridors of success towards a deliberate failure.
It is a subject (‘Ego’)where even Yogis fail to succeed despite of their arduous journey and hard efforts… but caution, submission and humility can enable any special or ordinary one transcend its venomous spell that engulfs the aspirants with any objective towards growth… inner or outer. That what appears to be most logical conclusion upon any vital person or subject in life, rationale, subjective or objective… could also be the outcome of an injected serum of malefic unidentifiable ‘Ego’. An understanding once developed towards its identity shall afford all chances for the warriors of harmony and affluence succeed most.
(Under Para 2. It was deliberated that people of different generations hold their respective ‘truths’ gathered from the realities of their times and they hold a logical conclusion for any understanding they form within themselves.
Under Para 3. Another indication was referred that summarizes towards situations where ‘Ego’ constructed on any account come into its foreplay for any relationship or conduct. )
The difference between intelligent and wise comes out of a very thin line that matters as diverse as two solar galaxies apart. It is not necessary that the intelligent shall succeed at all times whereas it is for sure that the wise ones shall always end up with more harmony and inner growth… For more find it in the Part-2 of the same article at desire2wil.com.
