Excerpt About Ego Development
Ego Development Seen to be Guided by the Personal EssenceOne can see the whole process of ego development as determined and guided by the personal essence, or even as the unfolding of an already existing topography or design. We cannot, however, say the same thing about ego. Ego does not exist in its final form in the potential of human beings. It exists, at birth, only in its functions, which we have already discussed as reflecting more the personal essence itself. Seeing realization from different but equally valid points of view, is a reflection of the truth of Being: it is the original, eternally existing Reality. Being is where we come from, and how we go back to it can be understood from many perspectives, because perspectives are conceptual constructs, while Being precedes concepts.
