I have read extensively on the subject, so I am in more need of wisdom than knowledge. these are the current explanations I have.
1. The Ego is anything that causes one to think in terms of “I”, “ME”, or “MINE”.
2. The Ego is a charlatan who pretends to be the real me, by reinforcing my false belief that I am separate and not interconnected with the universe, and it’s source. (a.k.a. GOD)
3. E.G.O.-Ease God Out

I still can’t seem to get my head around it, if I am really not who I think I am, then who am I really?
