Re: Enlightenment: The Ego, what is it? How to transcend it.
The ego is a necessary part of human experience. Without it, we would have no point of reference in physical reality, no means of locating ourselves in space-time. It is a vital element that keeps us in the body, and allows us to participate in this unique experience of density.
I do believe that transcending the ego is key, not to escape it, but temporarily loosen it's hold on our consciousness so that we may experience ourselves in full manifestation, and put the ego in its proper place so that it works for us instead of us working for it.
My preferred methods of achieving such a state of ego-loss is meditation, pranayama, fasting, and psychedelic compounds. Sometimes individually, and sometimes different combinations of them all.
