We all learn to 'create' an ego, but it's not widely recognised that our ego is the cause of all our stress, sorrow and suffering. It's rarely understood that all our emotions have their roots in ego. Understand the ego and you understand almost everything. That includes why you feel what you feel and why people can behave in strange and often abusive ways. Mike George is an author and motivational speaker. His books include 'The 7 Myths of LOVE' and 'The Immune System of the SOUL'.
