The ego

Last week I ran across a reference to Amber-Allen Publishing (amberallen.com). Today I went to their web site. Who knew they published “The Four Agreements”? One of my favorite books.

About five years ago I took on the second Agreement – – Don’t take anything personally. It’s definitely one of the most difficult things I have taken on in life. More difficult even than abstaining from ice cream. And that is a tough one.

But I digress. The ego.

On the Amber-Allen site is a blog. Good stuff there. The first post I saw was “The Ego”. From the post I got a much healthier (I believe) view of the ego and its function in our lives. That our ego is there to help us deal with the physical world and we might as well thank that part of us instead of trying to get that part of us to go away.

You can find the entire post (The Ego) at:

May your ego be your amigo.

Cheers,  Cliff
