Deepak Chopra explores the meaning and role of the ego in our consciousness. Is it good or bad? The ego is our self-image, not our true self. It is characterized by labels, masks, images, and judgements. The true self is the field of possibilities, creativity, intentions, and power. We can go beyond the ego through self awareness - awareness of our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and speech. Thus we begin to slowly move beyond the ego to the true self. Deepak reads a beautiful poem by Rabindranath Tagore, entitled "Who is this?" which describes the ego as "my own small self." Can you go beyond your own small self, your ego, to discover your true self?
