‘I’ and Ego
These are not separate entities.
The word ‘I’ comes from the Greek ‘ego’.
Ego is a self-identification to which consciousness clings.
A lie must have an element of truth in it to be believed.
We are led to believe in our self-identity.
The truth is pure consciousness,
but consciousness became trapped into believing in a self-identity:
it lost its freedom,
and forgot its true nature of being pure consciousness.
We keep wandering off!
