The ego is a very important topic for all who are following the path to personal Christhood. The function of the ego is to uphold the illusion that you are separated from your Source and from other people. As has been explained, the function of the Christ mind is to help you transcend this illusion.
Thus, the ego is the main obstacle you face on the path to Christhood. The ego is an “entity” in your subconscious mind that has a form of survival instinct. As a result, the ego will seek to manipulate or scare you into holding on to the illusions that spring from sepration. Unless you know about the ego and learn to see through its manipulation, you will find it very difficult to make progress on the path. This is equallyt true whether you come from a Christian, aBuddhist, a Hindu, a New SAge or any other background.
This section contains a series of articles that expose the main illusions created by the ego. The articles consist of short paragraphs and form a summary of longer teachings given in the book Freedom from Ego Illusions.
