no ego

Imagine a world without ego. No…

Toes to step on
Feelings to hurt
Fair shares to grab
Territory to defend
Fault to allocate
Back to watch
Last words to get
Ideas to hold back
Embarrassment to bear
Battles to win
Knowledge to prove
Entitlement to have
Encouragement to withhold
Credit to seek
Grudges to hold
Jealousy to feel
Revenge to take
Hidden meanings to construe
Just pure care.
To be no ego…

Be humble. Understand you are a (small) part of the world. Service and patience should be your top priorities.

Be teachable. Focus on what you can learn, rather than what you know. Remember that almost everything you learn comes from the work of someone else.

Listen more. Make every effort to truly understand what others are saying (beyond just words). Allow a gap of silence before responding. Ask question (and listen, again).

Appreciate people. Enjoy others’ contributions. Don’t squelch ideas or defend territory. Encourage more.

Relax. Let go of the need to be right or win every time.

Nothing complex. So what do you say? You up for it? Speak no ego. Be no ego.

  1. I sometimes tell myself “let go ego.” Makes me think of the silly commercial for Eggo waffles and how people fought over the waffle. That commercial is ALL ego and a good lesson to let go the ego.

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
