Obstacles To Awakening

In this episode Eckhart talks about the ego and other factors that block us from deeper awareness. Eckhart explains why the ego loves opposition and thrives on feeling superior. He says being obsessed with the need to be right in a conversation is a perfect example because some may defend their position so fiercely, they become completely unconscious. He says awakening is the only thing that can save us from our egos. Eckhart believes, with practice, we discover a joyfulness in the depths of our being that has nothing to do with what’s happening out there.
