This session is to be presented to the Sophia philosophical group in Byron Bay.
It is sometimes said that getting to know oneself is like peeling back the layers of an onion. But Nature shows that an onion becomes a better onion by adding layers.
In this presentation Stephen offers the idea that rather than trying to diminish our egos, we, like Nature, get better, wiser by adding layers of experience and insight.
Stephen will cover how our energy is expressed via two basic forms of ego, by our “IGO!” and “WEGO?” and that both are vitally necessary for a healthy, active and fulfilling life.
Your “IGO!” is assertive. It is decisive, firm, closed (to further discussion). It doesn’t ask for permission, it commands (e.g. a parent commanding a child to stay away from a busy road). Your “IGO!” says no, without guilt.
Your “WEGO?” or more descriptively “HAWEGO?” is the collaborative, “How about we go … ?” ego. It’s an invitation that is open, and fluid. “Your WEGO?” is an energy of attraction – of attracting others to your cause or ideas, of attracting them to you, of finding consensus and unity.
When we fail to balance these two forms of ego, we become selfish (“IGO!”) or selfless (“WEGO?”), and neither is optimal by themselves.
In this presentation, Stephen will share the benefits of balancing these two energies.
