Anja van Loon Once you accept that you are nothing other more than a transfer of energy, there is nothing to define about an I am? Other than just to "place" you as an state of being. To define your state of being, so ego based?
There is a big difference about what is called the ego. From a perspective of Freud or an American perspective out of a so called state of personal growth. Is there to define a state of being? If so than it is judicious.
To just be, so to feel "able" to "feel" enlightened from defining of what kind of state ever, the biggest gift to be in a state of just to be? I am, nothing more and nothing less. ;) I just am.
Gary R. Smith 'I' hear you, Anja.
What you call 'a state of just to be,' I call 'living from the Timeless.'
Yet, we are defined.

Without some definition, how can a human live as an individual on this planet? Earth is also well defined, in the illusion of matter.
No person can live only in a state of just being.
The closest, while still in the body, is to dance between the Timeless and the Temporal.
So why fight ego, however it is defined?
Who does the fighting?
I have not yet seen a satisfactory definition, and once read a headline, 'The ego does not exist.'
Who defines what ego is or is not?
We could also simply called the ego the defined.
I do not define the Timeless. It is for me a feeling. It is also Placeless. To live and move and have my being in the world, I define myself, I place myself within the undefined state of Being. And dance.
Philotimo definition #3567:A choice in the moment to live from the Timeless (the borderless, undefined Infinite) in a dance with the bordered, defined Temporal, evidenced by whole human acts of eternal qualities.
