Poor hungry ego can never get enough control, so it fears for itself. standing always in an attack/defend posture, it freezes out relationships it cannot control.
Poor Hungry Ego can never get enough things to make itself happy. Soon the things pile up and trap ego all alone under the pile of things.
Poor hungry ego can never get enough love to feel complete, so it sucks up attention wherever it can…and still it never knows that it is loved.
Poor hungry ego is deprived, starved. It cannot function as healthy ego which knows its sacred separateness.
Healthy ego has no fear of being one with others and no addiction to the company of others.
Healthy ego, our sacred separateness, is the opposite of egoism.
