ego

  • November 8, 2017

the belief in the reality of the separated or false self, made as substitute for the Self Which God created; the thought of separation that gives rise to sin, guilt, fear, and a thought system based on specialness to protect itself; the part of the mind that believes it is separate from the Mind of Christ; this split mind has two parts: wrong- and right-mindedness; almost always used to denote ” wrong-mindedness,” but can include the part of the split mind that can learn to choose right-mindedness.

(Note — not to be equated with the ” ego” of psychoanalysis, but can be roughly equated with the entire psyche, of which the psychoanalytic ” ego” is a part.)
