Book cover Ego


Worry Is Neither Care Nor Responsibility

• Ego will help you to recognize, remove, and replace your ego: a.k.a. self-esteem.

  • WORRY SERVES EGO PAYOFFS, REWARDS & SATISFACTIONS

WORRY IS NOT CARE

  • Worry is negative programming.
  • Worry is negative prayer and planning.
  • Worry is negative expectation and intention.
  • Worry pretends to be a victim, but it is only a perpetrator.
  • Worry pretends to care, but it only cares about being right.

WORRY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE

  • Who made you responsible for life that you must worry about life?
  • Who gave you power and authority over life that you must worry about life?
  • Just who do you think you are that your worry is so powerful, potent, and important?
  • Just who do you think you are that your worry has power and magic to change events?
  • Just who or what do you think you are that you cannot risk or afford to stop worrying?

WORRY IS JUDGMENTAL

  • You cannot worry without judging.
  • You won’t compulsively worry without pride in being right.
  • You won’t compulsively worry without thinking you know better.
  • You won’t compulsively worry without pride in your ability to judge.

WORRY SEEKS TO BE A GOD KNOWING GOOD & EVIL

  • Worry is trying to become good by playing the judge.
  • Worry’s goal is to maintain the judge role for your identity.
  • Worry sacrifices reality, time, and energy to playing judge, because it serves ego addiction.
  • Worry is an addiction to pride, to knowing better than self, others, and life for the sake of ego.
  • Worry is one way to play the game of knowing better than others or life, of having pride as the knowledge of good.
