Host: What do we do with our ego needs? Chris Wright: We need to realize that these ego needs really are a trap. I mean, they are not wrong. We all have them and we certainly want them responded to and filled but they really trap. They bind consciousness and so when you don’t have that need then it doesn’t make sense why it matters so much to somebody or at least need to impress people. You don’t have that need. It doesn’t make sense, why are they trying to impress you? An aged need to be confronted and domineering and dominating, bullheaded. It’s like why they do need that. When you don’t have those pressures inside yourself, you see through the illusion that really matters, that it is important. So, and for yourself I mean truth is that, if you didn’t have that need, you wouldn’t be over the top either. For example, if you took a sedative, then were just wouldn’t matter what you are going to argue about anymore. So, we need to come to grips with a lot of things in the conflict that we have, or ego needs that feel real to us. But, the reality comes from the trap, of trying to meet something outside of ourselves we’re desperate to fill, to fill whole and we don’t get that need met, we tend to feel empty.
