  The Causal Body by A.E.Powell (Part 2 of 2)
From the point of view of the ego, during the earlier part of that little fragment of existence on the physical plane, which we call life, the outward force of the ego is still strong: at the middle of it, in ordinary cases, that force becomes exhausted, and the great inward sweep begins.
Furthermore, whilst in the case of the ordinary man, the consciousness of the ego on his own plane is only partial and vague, yet so far as it is active, it is always on the side of good, because it desires that which is favourable to its own evolution as a soul.
Meditation is a method of drawing the attention of the ego: it should however be born in mind that, in the practice of meditation, instead of trying to interrupt the ego, and draw him down to the personality, we should strive to reach up to him in his higher activity.

 Attempts of the Ego
A person seeking higher consciousness is, in effect, and with intensity, seeking the transformation of his own ego.
He is seeking to end the tyranny of the ego and abide in his true nature, instead of a false nature concocted through experiences and emotional inputs during the process of life.
You may, instead, have a highly developed ego which is sure that it is causing the events of higher consciousness to unfold bit by bit.

 La Transcendance de L'ego
The ego of Sartre's phenomenological account, however, unlike that of Husserl's, is not to be thought of as a 'pole' or a 'support' around which psychic phenomena cluster.
The ego is a transcendent unity of transcendent unities; an appropriate metaphor would be that of the melody which transcends individual notes.
The transcendence of the ego may not feature as explicitly in his later work but it is a correlate of the absolute translucency of consciousness which can only be considered a (the?) cornerstone in the development of Sartrean existential phenomenology.

 Ego Networks
Ego networks consist of a focal node ("ego") and the nodes to whom ego is directly connected to (these are called "alters") plus the ties, if any, among the alters.
It should be obvious that random sampling of egos from a large pop will not form a network: it is likely that no ego mentions an alter that is another ego or is an alter of another ego.
According to Granovetter, the stronger the tie between EGO and two of her alters, the greater the likelihood that the alters enjoy at least a weak tie.

 The Ego and Its Own - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ego and Its Own (German: Der Einzige und sein Eigentum; also translated as The Individual and His Property; a literal translation would read The Sole One and His Property) is the main work by German philosopher Max Stirner, published in 1844.
Stirner himself does claim his own "doctrine" of self-interest to be a universal truth or established viewpoint, and likens his book to a ladder you throw away after climbing, a sort of self-therapy.
The "bleak and uncompromising vision" that he alludes to on p263 is in fact a description of a bird singing in a tree for the sheer joy of creating its own song.

 Ego On The Spiritual Path   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
As ego watches us gleefully become more and more ensnared in its web, it will even blame all the pain, loneliness, and difficulties we are going through as we come to know ourselves on the teaching, and even on the teacher: "These gurus don't care anyway, whatever you're going through.
Yet however hard ego may try to sabotage the spiritual path, if you continue on it, and work deeply with the practice of meditation, you will begin slowly to realize just how gulled you have been by ego's promises: false hopes and false fears.
For alongside an extremely precise and sometimes painful realization of the fraudulence and virtual criminality of your ego, and everyone else's, grows a sense of inner expansiveness, a direct knowledge of the "egolessness" and interdependence of all things, and that vivid and generous humor that is the hallmark of freedom.

 Tiebout Papers: Ego Factors   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This concept of the inflated ego recognizes the common ancestor of a whole series of traits, namely, that they are all manifestations of an underlying feeling state in which personal considerations are first and foremost.
Freud's own research was concerned mainly with the activities of the id and the superego.
He first portrays the Ego as follows: "Once it was a baby, radiant with self-esteem, full of belief in the omnipotence of its wishes, of its thoughts, gestures and words." Then, on the process of Ego-reduction: "But the child's megalomania melted away under the inexorable pressure of experience.

 Wizards of Ozymandias
Rand — with her preoccupation for "rationality" - had contempt for those who spoke of such intangible qualities as feelings, emotions, and anything that smacked of a "spiritual" side to being human.
Men and women who exhibited such dispositions were dismissed as "mystics." For those whose lives are ego-centered, anything beyond the ego becomes little more than a barrier to or resource for the fulfillment of ego-will.
Whether the clone is to be considered a person whose will over his or her own life will be regarded as inviolate will likely receive as little attention as it does for the rest of us when our political masters use us as "spare parts" in their machinations!

 No Escape for the Ego
Three years later, feeling at home in the quiet calm of solitary practice but convinced that his efforts to cultivate freedom from "greed, anger, arrogance and ignorance" were still incomplete, he decided to double the time of his retreat, extending to a total of six years this period of seclusion, contemplation, practice and study.
So the ego and the method that you are using to transcend the ego are in direct opposition to each other.
But if an individual has a weaker, softer ego and still understands that they need to practice diligently to deal with it, then we could say that these individuals, because they have both a strong desire for liberation and a smaller ego, are closer to enlightenment.

When the ego and thinking are treated as the same thing there is a reluctance to be wrong and a need to defend a point of view rather than to explore the situation.
A person should be able to treat his thinking much as a tennis player treats his strokes: he should be able to walk off the court complaining that his backhand was not working very well on that occasion or that it required more practice.
As armed conflict is highly gendered and women’s experiences during war differ from those of men, any conflict mapping and tracking exercise undertaken for use in negotiation must also take account of shifting gender relations and women’s activities throughout all phases of conflict and its aftermath.

 The Ego and His Own, by Max Stirner (26-50)
As a visionary lives and has his world only in the visionary pictures that he himself creates, as a crazy man generates for himself his own dream-world, without which he could not be crazy, so the spirit must create for itself its spirit world, and is not spirit till it creates it.
But, as in the thinking ego hearing and sight easily vanish in the enthusiasm of thought, so you also have been seized by the spirit-enthusiasm, and you now long with all your might to become wholly spirit and to be dissolved in spirit.
What he says is that we had only mistaken our own essence, and therefore looked for it in the other world, but that now, when we see that God was only our human essence, we must recognize it again as ours and move it back out of the other world into this.

 Anxiety and the Ego (part 14) Kabbalah and Psychology
The more a person experiences his own self and fills his mind with his own feelings and self-image, the more intimidating is anything which poses a potential threat to the perfection of his self-perception.
The neutralization of the ego is therefore the sine qua non of the rectification process; the most primary and basic stage in healing the psyche is submission.
If a person begins by considering his own lowliness, he may well succeed in convincing himself of it, but all the while he will still be focused on himself.

 The Ego & His Own
The system-makers and system-believers thus far cannot get it out of their heads that any discourse about the nature of an ego must turn upon the common characteristics of egos, to make a systematic scheme of what they share as a generality.
At least I am something more than "man in general." Pre-existing worship of ideals and disrespect for self had made of the ego at the very most a Somebody, oftener an empty vessel to be filled with the grace or the leavings of a tyrannous doctrine; thus a Nobody.
They will find it convenient for their own welfare to make terms with men who have learned of Stirner what a man can be who worships nothing, bears allegiance to nothing.

 The Ego and His Own, by Max Stirner (351-375)
The question therein is of the whole range of the ego's self-realization of value from himself, and therefore also of his self-consciousness against the State.
And one is this precisely by seeking his competence no longer in a ware, but in his own labor, his competence for labor; and therefore by being a ragamuffin, a man of only ideal wealth.
Not in the State, but only against it, can the liberty of the press be carried through; if it is to be established, it is to be obtained not as the consequence of a petition but as the work of an insurrection.
