I describe the ego as a mind-made fiction that prevents you from realizing your true identity as a spiritual being in a human body.
I show you how the ego is a fiction of the mind, a superficial identity, not real but seemingly real to you. The ego is ruled by fear and this is why the planet is gripped by fear at this time.
Of course, despots for millennia have known that fear is the best way to control human egos, and they are doing it to this day. The ego assumes that we are all separate from each other, from nature and from God. This is why the ego is so fearful; if you are all alone on the Universe to duck and dive and get through with just your mind, that is a very scary place to be!
