I’ve been listening to and learning a lot of the psalms , especially the purification psalms and I was wondering what other people think about the ego.
With us all coming from source or God and God being the creator of all things, I don’t know about you or if you might know the answer to this but where does the ego come from? Did we create it as a tool to allow us to separate ourselves from God? I did consider this at first and thought that the negative consequences it brings could be a tool in itself to help us to realise how much it hurts to be separate from God and therefore a way to bring us closer to God when we’ve learnt how painful it is. Yet the more I’ve listened to Ariel the less convinced I am of this, especially when he talks about how the ego wants to drive us to insanity and destroy and kill us. I mean it can’t be a tool to learn from if we’re dead.
So if everything has to come from God and God created everything what purpose or function was the ego created for? I’d love to hear some opinions on this. Maybe one of Gods other creations created it? I just don’t know.
