While i was getting to know ego i also came across several dimensions to it. like why humans are always plunged in the deep thoughts of desperation, recklessness, conflict, peace and harmony etc, i believe that human has been formed in such a way that it knows how to master the ego by defeating wants of material body to reach the supremacy of consciousness.
If someone is thinking that it is through brain control then i have a bad news, its not!
Brain is the most efficient muscle of human body but note i used the word 'muscle', an involuntary muscle, making this fact the most amazing fact in itself. the chemical compositions and decompositions can make or break your body and mind. So how does it work? whats the correlation between everything; body, soul, brain, mind, ego, consciousness and us?
As the body is made up of this earth's matter and has to dissolve here therefore it yearns and longs for worldly pleasure. it has lust for long wish list of materialism; beauty, money, fame, power, supremacy, recognition etc. On the parallel, soul is made of energy that is made up of matter; light and electromagnetism. Soul is beyond this earth and its gravitational force just like your dreams. interestingly, your brain makes you see and interpret things until you start believing in them. that's why we use the proverb, 'seeing is believing' and not 'feeling is believing'.
the soul feeds on love, care, happiness, peace,compassion, harmony, etc. Soul is blind unlike body and it feels, it feels through the warmth and coldness of faith and inner light. the soul gets its nourishment from this inner light, the key element. (contd.)
