Understanding the ego

I’ve begun a new series of talks on inner life and seeing with the eye of the soul called How To See Spiritually. Previous talks have looked at why spirituality is important, soul, wonder, interiority, scepticism and parables. Now I turn to the ego.

It’s common to hear that spiritual development walks hand in hand with the denial of the ego. But we need our egos to be sane individuals, so something more subtle needs to be understood. In this talk, I explore how the real question is whether the ego is in service to itself or to that which is greater than itself, and so is able to support perceiving spiritually.

Watch out for future talks on Psi, Virtues and Imagination.
