Ego is the mother of all evils untruthfulness, greediness, anger, hatred and above all jealousy which keeps a man in revengeful mood. It is an inflated feeling of pride in our superiorly to others. It makes us conscious of our own identity all times. It is a stumbling block and hide the vast happiness of the mind.
There was once a scientist. After a lot of practice and efforts, he developed a formula and learned the art of reproducing himself. He did it so perfectly that it was impossible to tell the reproduction from the original. One day he realized that the Devil of death is searching for him. In order to remain immortal he reproduced a dozen copies of himself. The reproduction was so meticulous that all of them looks exactly like him.
Now when the Devil of death come down, he was at a loss to know who the original scientist was. Confused, he left them all alone and return back to heaven. But not for long. Being an expert in human nature, the Devil came up with a clever idea. He said to the scientist addressing all of them, “Sir you might be genius to have succeeded in making such perfect reproduction formula of yourself, however, I discovered a flaw in your work, just one tiny little flaw.”
The scientist’s ego got hurt and he immediately jumped out and shouted, “impossible! There can not be a flaw.” Right here said the Devil as he picked up the scientist from among the reproduction and carried him off. The whole purpose of the scientist failed as he could not able to control his pride and lost his life. So while knowledge and skill take one to the top of the success, the three-letter word called “EGO” can pull one down immediately.
As Ego starts raising, we should cut it, as it pushes God or joy away from us.
