Here’s a sad truth. This meme doesn’t just refer to present day children, it refers to all humanity… as we all were children at some point. We were taught what to think and believe, not how to think and form our own beliefs. It began with our parents, with language, religion and social customs, traditions, and certain physical skills. We were taught to FOLLOW ORDERS, and to OBEY our parent’s aka (superiors, authorities)

Says 382 – Ego – and critical thinking
I found this meme on my FB time line and I just had to comment on it. While it appears to be enlightened, in reality it lacks mental depth and critical thinking and instead, jumps to conclusions.
With just a bit more thought, one would realize that the EGO is not the problem, but the ALTERED EGO is. It’s the EGO that has become aware of itself; aware that it has been altered by old conditioned mind patterns, or, as I like to refer to them as imprints, programs and beliefs. It’s problem solving 101, something that the author of the meme and quote don’t have.
An analogy would be that a person realizes that their shoe lace has broken and is causing them to trip and stumble. Now is the person that is wearing the shoe with the broken lace the problem, or have they just recognized that there is a problem.
Food for thought… or not.
