The EGO is that aspect of your being that identifies with the positions and possessions of your life. It is ultimately your self image – the way you want to project who you are to yourself and to the world.
The EGO is the boundary marker that attempts to assert ownership through the concepts of “I,” “me,” “my,” and “mine.”
The EGO seeks security through control and often has a deep-seated need for approval. Most emotional pain is the result of your EGO being offended because something that it believed it had control over was actually outside its jurisdiction .
