Egoic level from The Deep Heart

“Finally, the egoic level involves so-called self-consciousness.

We actually feel self-conscious when we are concerned about what others think and feel about us.

“Do you think I am ok or doing it right?”

When we are consumed by this doubt, we feel anxious and awkward.

Self-consciousness is rooted in our social consciousness by how much our sense of self is shaped by our family and the larger culture.

So-called self-consciousness is typical other-consciousness that is, what we imagine others think and feel about us.

It is an important step to recognize that our thoughts about others’ views of us are mostly our projections of what we think and feel about ourselves.

Deep self-awareness and self-acceptance undermine this tendency to project onto or judge others.

As we stop judging ourselves, we stop judging others.

Everyone benefits.”

My two cents: I need to go below this level, way below.
