Is the Ego Running Your Life? on Youtube


Debra Maldonado  00:26

Hello, welcome to yet another episode of Soul Sessions with CreativeMind. I am Debra Maldonado, here with Dr. Rob Maldonado. We have a new series called the psychology of transformation. Many people do personal development, maybe you are interested in transformation. How do I change my life? How do I change the circumstances of my life? How can I be more peaceful and calm in my body, my mind, my soul? What is life about? We’re looking for transformation because things aren’t working in our life, certain things aren’t working. We want to make sure they align with what we really want. That’s the theme. Many times we have a misunderstanding of what it takes to transform, what it means to transform. Before we start with our topic today, which is the ego, I want to ask you to please subscribe to us, push that button in the corner if you’re watching us on YouTube. If you’re listening to us on one of the podcast services, subscribe to our channel, be sure to leave a comment and review. We love those, and love to hear your feedback and what you want to learn more about. We hope to see you in every episode. Today we’ll talk about the ego. The question we’re trying to answer is, is the ego really evil?

Before we get going, I’d like to give a shout-out to all our new students, all our students really, because everyone is really doing incredible work. They’re being very brave in facing their shadow and doing self-inquiry work, which is challenging to say the least. I’d like to dedicate this podcast to them.

We love our students. They’re incredible. They’re one of the best people on the planet.

Ego is really a mystery. It’s out so incredible that we do have this ego, the sense of I. Is it really evil? We’ll let you decide.

Debra Maldonado  02:55

We’re gonna lay out the case, the pros and the cons.
