identification with things
Identification with things
  • Identification with things e.g. the toy is the context (content). How the toy becomes part of “I” identity is the structure.

Identification with things
  • Later, instead of toys, my cars, my house and my life become part of “I”. How meaningful are these when death is near

  • Identification with body, gender & physical appearance: We can see this clearly with the TV Commercials that push beauty products.

Inflation and Defence of Ego

identification with status and fame
Identification with Status and fame
  • Identification with status: Holier than others, i.e. bigger ego, e.g. Bible story – lesson of the widow’s mites.
  • Identification with fame: Ego needs to feel superior, e.g. movie stars, sport stars.

characteristics of ego
Characteristics of Ego
  • Ego lives through comparison: chasing wealth and fame, e.g.

Inflation and Defence of Ego

characteristics of ego1
Characteristics of Ego
  • Ego tends to equate “Having” with “Being”. I have therefore I am. But its satisfaction in having is relatively short lived. Why? Because form is never permanent.
  • Ego is greedy and always wants more: Wanting is structural, so no amount of content can fulfill it, e.g. Ego always wants something from other people or situations. The hidden agenda is “ a sense of not enough yet”. The underlying emotions is fear. Again because identification with form is never permanent.

characteristics of ego2
Characteristics of Ego
  • Ego wants to be “right”: Even some religious practice cannot rise above this, e.g.
  • 1. Catholic church Inquisition and Reformation
  • 2. Islamic jihad

Inflation and Defence of Ego

characteristics of ego3
Characteristics of Ego
  • Ego does not want peace. It wants drama and conflicts, e.g. action movies.
  • Ego loves complaining and resentment: to feel superior, to feel important, e.g name calling, shouting and physical violence.

Inflation and Defence of Ego

characteristics of ego4
Characteristics of Ego
  • Ego likes role playing: e.g. villain (temper tantrum), victim (seeking sympathy and pity), lover (falling in love – intensification of egoist wanting and needing), self definite roles in society (priest, doctor, farmer, merchant). So “you” are not relating to that person at all, but who “you” think you are is relating to who “you” think the other person is and vice versa.

Inflation and Defence of Ego

characteristics of ego5
Characteristics of Ego
  • Parental role: don’t disappoint me. I sacrificed so much for you. Parents know best. Don’t fight them. Ego will take up a defensive position. Recognize that you are dealing with their egoist self and not their true self.
  • Ego can also takes things personally, e.g. “ Believe me, I know”, “Why don’t you believe me?” The action can be defensive, even aggressive.

Inflation and Defence of Ego

collective ego
Collective Ego
  • Collective ego can act like individual ego, e.g. war, national conflicts.

Inflation and Defence of Ego

characteristics of ego6
Characteristics of Ego
  • Ego leads to greed.
  • Ego feeds hostility
  • Ego is stubborn, ignorant.
