Actions Lost in Confusion; The ego's impact on our lives

It dawned on me last evening the depth of impact the ego has on our lives.

We all think that we are in control of our lives and we make decisions that guide our life and it's outcomes.

The reality is, that is not the case. All of our decisions are subject to the manipulations of the ego and they bounce from one idea to the other until 'it' gets an outcome 'it' wants, sometimes the ego's efforts produce madness and mayhem. The end result of your 'free will' is that it is not 'free' at all and we live our lives according to what that voice in our heads tells us to do.

Not one in 100,000 is driving their life with free will. Yet if you suggest this they will deny it or become upset.

No wonder madness, ignorance and folly are all around us.

An old Zen question is: Are you driving the 24 hours or are the 24 hours driving you?

Ego is the madness that forms as a parasite within the human mind.
It is not native, not natural, not benign.
"Squawk!" said the crow, and then made space.
