Everything i start to post lately seems designed by the ego to feed my ego!

For a while, you will see, in my journal, other people's poetry
and probably not that much from me.

But all is well, all things will be well.

Oh, my, just to clarify-- I myself am definitely not thinking of you or anything about you as disordered. Rather, I was thinking of non-ego as an extremely unnatural and-- to me-- undesirable state for a human. Though of course there's such a thing as too much, as well!

Ego means different things, Freud's ego must be strong and in control. It is the "adult" without which ids would class i mutual destruction or id and superego would be in never ending combat.

Modern psychologists, i think, may see the ego as individuation., in which the oversocialized person creates a personal identity which us not a prisoner of the group. It is a step toward "transformation" into a more inclusive identity.

This is just off the cuff. But maybe i should be more specific about which ego i am trying to subdue. It is the one that may be standing in the way of greater inclusiveness.

I did not take your comment personally, but it did remind of some pondering i have done in the past. Asperber's insight may have been that "all genius may be touched by autism."

Yes-- what I mean by ego, and tend to think is meant in general non-technical conversation, is individuation or self.

I've never liked nirvana, either. :D

Nirvana, paradise, heaven, happy hunting ground, Tao.- it is unconceptualizable. Any word i would use would be nonsense. Ego night serve no purpose there; and if it is a void it might be full.
