Kill the Ego

There was once a scientist. After years of experiments and efforts, he developed a formula to reproduce himself. He did it so perfectly that it was impossible to tell the copies from the original.

One day while doing his research, he realized that the Angel of Death was searching for him. In order to remain alive he reproduced a dozen copies of himself. The copies were so similar that all of them looked exactly like him.

When the Angel came, he was at a loss to know which of the 13 scientists was the original scientist. Confused, he left them all alone and returned back to heaven.

But, not for long, the Angel came back with a clever idea. He said to the 13 scientists in front of him, “Sir, you must be a genius to have succeeded in making such perfect reproduction of yourself. However, I have discovered a flaw in your work, just one tiny little flaw.”

The scientist immediately jumped out and shouted, “Impossible! Where is the flaw?”

“Right here,” said the Angel, as he picked up the scientist from among the copies and carried him off. The whole purpose of the scientist and his plan of reproducing himself failed as he could not control his pride, so he lost his life.

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.

So kill the ego, don’t let it to kill you.
