“ Ego is much more dangerous than superego.”


...Freud brought out a point by saying that the desiring power, if you try to suppress it, then you get conditioned. But he did not understand that there is another power which may develop if you do not try to control your desiring power. By conditioning your desiring power you develop a superego in your head. But by acting on all your desires you develop another horrible thing called as ego. The conditioning can show its results on the physical side and mental side but ego doesn’t show any such signs.

Ego-oriented societies on the whole from outside appear to be very affluent and happy. Now these ego-oriented society if they were really happy why there is such a big rate of suicide? If ego is the most satisfying thing why people who are ego-oriented drink so much or take to drugs? Why do they want to run away from reality? Why do they have problems with their families? They appear to be very serious and miserable, never cheerful.
When you have to talk to them also you have to bring in some sort of a alcohol to induce some conversation between two human beings. Supposing we had said that there is going to be a free drinking today, there would have been, this hall would have been filled. (Mother laughs) But they have no time to face reality. So, ego is much more dangerous than superego is. It eats you up from within and when it reaches its peak it will start, it starts destroying the all the human race.

So we are placed between ego and superego. These two institutions were necessary to grow within us and to be calcified in our fontanelle area because that is how we felt our I’ness. These two institutions of ego and superego. Because we wanted to feel our “I”ness. When these two meet in the head here in your childhood and get calcified, you become Mr XYZ. This “I”ness is given to us to know our freedom and to choose the right and wrong by developing our sense of discrimination, to be XYZ, to be Mr XYZ, the freedom.
So an individuality is given to you. You become an individual. You become an individual. Now this little individual starts thinking that he is the lord of the universe and he just transforms something dead into another dead form and he thinks he’s doing great works. Actually human beings don’t do anything important. Even a small thing, our like our breathing, if we have to analyse it, we’ll be all dead. This evolutionary power is within us in the centre as I told you, comes to us by giving us at different stages the, what you call, sustenance. Sustenance, sustenance. …
