“Ego could be defined as whatever covers up basic goodness. From an experiential point of view, what is ego covering up? It's covering up our experience of just being here, just fully being where we are, so that we can relate with the immediacy of our experience. Egolessness is a state of mind that has complete confidence in the sacredness of the world. It is unconditional well being, unconditional joy that includes all the different qualities of our experience.”

conscious effort is required in the beginning until leaving your ego out becomes natural. Especially in a marriage.

Good Morning Raquel :)

In relationships we experience the full spectrum of feelings and emotions that exist such as love, hate, anger, elation, loneliness, frustration, fear, jealousy, lust, infatuation, adorations and others. Some of these feelings and emotions can be destructive and very painful,therefore I agree with you, Raqueal...leaving out your Ego is very essential - "Especially in marriage."

Have a wonderful day!
Cheers!
