No Going Back

So, what does Steve Taylor mean by “pathological over development of the ego“? I think he means the obsessive desire for power, status, and material wealth regardless of its cost to other people and nature. What do you think he means? Do you even agree with his assessment that the world’s collective psyche needs to transition to a new, enlightened state?

Steve recommends practicing meditation and it’s sibling, mindfulness, as the best means of quieting the mind and loosening the iron grip of the ego. Too bad I suck at both of them and, for some strange reason, I choose not to make the time to practice them. I’m too occupied with searching for, and hoarding,  intellectual knowledge to complete myself – even though I know that the effort won’t pay off.
