Present:.. "EGO CHECK".
EGO FUNCTION FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF EGO STRENGTH
RATHER THAN EGO DEFICIT.
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities;
all is vanity.
Thus, Says The LORD,
The Heaven is My Throne, and the Earth My footstool..
Where is the House that you build unto Me,
and where is the Place of My Rest?
"Thy Kingdom Come". "BEING You, BEING Me".. Matthew 5:5.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth.

"Meek", Blessed in the Scripture is not referred to in meaning as a frailty, but as a strength of being that can be best described as an open ego minus self-conceit and vanity; with the personality, individuality, self, the "I"; ..that selflessly seeks to serve, more than to be served; while retaining controlled self-esteem, self-importance, self-worth, self-respect, self-image, ....that are productive traits, in contact with the external world through perception. The ego remembers, evaluates, plans, and in other ways is responsive to and acts in the surrounding physical and social world, to which the selfless ego applies its skills to righteous service..
A strong ego in this sense is not one evident at birth, but is a learned, developing process in the alteration of behavior as a result of individual experience and understanding, for whomever will perceive and change behavior.
Thus, a strong ego is exhibited in the following characteristics: objectivity in one's apprehension of the external world and in self-knowledge (insight); capacity to organize activities over longer time spans (allowing for the maintenance of schedules and plans); and the ability to follow resolves while choosing decisively among alternatives; with a strong and righteous sense of community and service for the welfare of others.
Matthew 11:28, 29, 30
Come to Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will Give you rest.
Take My Yoke upon you and learn of Me,
for I AM Meek and Lowly in Heart and you shall find rest for your souls.
For My Yoke Is easy, and My Burden Is Light.
I AM the Light of the world:
He that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
With the desire to righteously serve others in the absence of the predominantly self-serving ego functioning from self-conceit and self idolatry, is the vacancy for the strength that can "house" the Power of The Living GOD.
1 John 5:21.
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.
In Freudian psychoanalytic theory, the last of the three elements to develop, the superego, one of the three aspects of the human personality, along with the id and the ego, is the ethical component of the personality, providing the moral standards by which the ego operates.
The superego is formed during the first five years of life in response to parental punishment and approval. Children internalize their parents' moral standards as well as those of the surrounding society, and the developing superego serves to control aggressive or other socially unacceptable impulses.
Violation of the superego's standards gives rise to feelings of guilt or anxiety..
Thus, when the conscious personality does not oppose the unconscious, righteous self in this, the benefits attained are from the human storehouse within of said Power that is being unlocked.
And GOD Created man in His Own Image, in the Image of GOD Created He him;
male and female Created He them.
Isaiah 41:17, 18
When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue fails for thirst,
I, The LORD will Hear them,
I, The GOD of Israel will not forsake them.
I will Open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys:.
I will Make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
That attainment of Power from within is Given only through GOD Who Knows the hearts of all: a Gift of the Spirit.
Produce your Cause, Says The LORD.... bring forth your strong reasons.
And I will give to you the Keys to The Kingdom of Heaven: ...
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear,
neither has the eye seen, O GOD, beside You,
what He has Prepared for him that waits for Him.
Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His Sight:
but all things are naked and opened to the Eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.
The predominant degree of ego of folks can be evident to those aware, quickly detected, like the color of eyes or the tone of voice.
Spotting a self-conceited, self-serving ego is a protective ability for those that are wary. Found among many to some degree, reclusivity may work for some, but is not practical for most. Liars, troublemakers, abusers, thieves, criminals, etc., exhibit a weak, vain, out of control ego. Necessarily dealing carefully and responsibly with such requires understanding and patience.
Better is a poor and a wise child, than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
II Samuel 23:3
... one that rules over men must be just, ... governing in the fear of GOD.
Political tyrants are cursed with weak, self-serving, overly dominant egos; exhibiting mean aggressiveness, often violence; impenetrable by truth; demanding, seeking power and control over others for selfish gain; these generally very harmful in their doings; to whom there seems yet to be little progress in successful diplomatic dialog employed to opportunely and effectively persuade and dissuade.
The fear of The LORD is clean, enduring for ever:
The Judgments of The LORD Are True and Righteous altogether..
Diplomats would do well to promote the assessment of ego strength, as in a valuable skill for nurse psychotherapists, and to underscore the importance of ego strength as a relevant construct for both assessment and psychotherapy outcome measurement; while necessarily appealing to the superego's higher standards. How many diplomats are there, themselves with these necessary-for-true-success qualities and skills?
How many politicians in power and potentially seeking to attain power, themselves have the necessary and safe qualities and skills to hold power?
Ecclesiastes 2:19; 4:14
And who knows whether he shall be wise or a fool?
Yet shall one have rule over all my labor wherein I have labored,.
and wherein I have showed myself wise under the sun?
This is also vanity.
For out of prison he comes to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becomes poor.
"Neighbors & Family". Ecclesiastes 4:4.
Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbor.
This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
Overbearing egos are found in some or even many in one's neighbors, and in one's own family where contentious and unavoidable relationships can turn painful, testing one's patience and control. In many cases the troublesome can't control aggression or don't think they have a problem; possibly harboring deep resentments or envies, continually erring, causing trouble; being deceived in the spirit, some, seemingly irreversibly, never growing and changing behavior for the better.
Certainly, one mostly finds avoiding troublesome loved ones is unthinkable, despite the conflicts and problems that endlessly arise. It certainly presents a challenge, a balancing of self-protection with personal open-mindedness, understanding tolerance, and forgiveness.
Take heed to yourselves: If your brother trespasses against you, rebuke him;
and if he repents, forgive him.
Apology is a necessary tool to improve a damaging relationship, and a required condition to move on to real forgiveness; in at least the repenters realize the trespass, and owning-up to it opens the way for change of behavior, strengthening the egos, to avoid future conflict, good for them, good for oneself. It isn't wise or fruitful to be too meek about one's own rights to be at peace and free in the pursuit of happiness.
Being "meek" in the perspective of ego-evolution and service does not mean that one loses anything important of one's own self-identity. On the contrary, one gains so much more than one is able to imagine in the human dimension of thought and being; as Clarified in the Word of GOD.
1 Corinthians 2:9
But as It Is Written,
Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man,
the things which GOD has Prepared for them that love Him.
Planet Earth is Marked for Salvation, since the Gift of the Advent of Christ from GOD, the Creator and Sovereign of all the Heavens and the Earth. The process may seem slow, but the Righteous Kingdom of GOD shall continually Reign on Earth as It IS In Heaven, as Jesus Himself Taught.
And H e (Jesus) Said to them, When you pray, say,
Our FATHER which Art in Heaven, Hallowed be Your Name.
Your Kingdom Come, Your Will Be Done, as in Heaven, so in Earth.
The persons who attain the "Growth" and who choose to righteously teach, even by example, and serve this Cause shall Blessed, indeed inherit the Earth, and the greater Universe shall be their playground.
John 10:27, 28.
My sheep hear My Voice, and I Know them, and they follow Me:
And I Give to them Eternal Life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My Hand..
"BEING You, ... BEING Me"
I do like "You", for all You do,.
true - to the "Real You".
And I like being "me",
I like the "who I am."
I like the "me", I like to be,
the "real me" -
the feeling "free me".
I like the "who I am":..
The "me" I like to be.
I like the "who - that's - real" for me,.. not just now, this is how, I'd always like to "be". - Gerry M. Kaye - 1991.
John 10:29, 30
My FATHER which Gave them Me, IS Greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of My FATHER's Hand.
I and My FATHER ARE ONE.. Amen.. "Living".
