THE EGO WILL ACCUSE YOU OF BEING IRRATIONAL.
If the Ego can’t sabotage you through cunning intellectualisation, it will attempt the opposite strategy. The Ego will then try to convince you that there is no way to think logically and rationally about such a nebulous issue. So it then tries to convince you that the topic should not even be considered and is best ignored.
THE EGO CAN GO INTO STEALTH MODE.
But what if the Ego’s initial sabotage tactics STILL do not work? What if you are wise to these tactics? What if you refuse the Ego’s interference and persist in investigating the enigma of your life quest on your own? For example, you might try quiet contemplation, insight, deep intuition, inspiration, and the like.
Then, the Ego can go into passive-aggressive mode! The Ego will continue to quietly sabotage your efforts. It will use stealth as its strategy. We might wrongly think that the Ego has given up, but this is never the case. It continues to operate behind the scenes in stealth mode. So we still need to be cautious of its ongoing interference.
BIG LIFE QUESTIONS EXPOSE THE EGO AS AN IMPOSTER!
Why does the Ego try so hard to stop us exploring our life purpose or quest? Why does the Ego want to stop us from finding what we are meant to do in our life? The Ego tries to stop us because our quest is one of the fundamental questions we can ask ourselves. It’s like the big question of “Who am I? and “What am I meant to do?” These types of existential questions are very threatening to our Ego. They can expose the Ego for what it really is…an imposter!
