How Ego Kills

Updated on October 25, 2009

 All of us are well familiar with the Word "EGO" according to OXFORD Dictionary. Ego is Noun and it means "The Self, The part of the mind that reacts to reality and has a sense of individuality, Self-esteem, self-conceit" Lets Find how Ego can kill oneself and what reaction it would have. I'm giving you here an example or a story with a Moral.
Years and years Ago, There was a scientist named as "A", he was so proud about himself due to his knowledge and work. He worked hard and finally made a formula of reproduction of living things from the original (same as it is) , one day he realized that He's old enough and Angel of death would be searching for him, so, to live forever he produced 12 copies of himself. One day the Angel came and Angel was confused which is original, which the angel has to take to heaven or hell, in confusion angel returned back by leaving 13 scientists on earth.

Angel thought of a Trick to get the right Scientist. He came back after some time and said in front of 13 that, however you have worked so well, yet i found a flaw in your work. The real scientist shocked and said: where's the flaw? Angel picked him up and said, here.

The whole purpose of scientist to make a formula of reproduction was to live as long as world exist but due to his Ego he lost his Life.

Being a Muslim, I believe that the above story is fake and there's not even 0.000% chance of cheating God/Allah or Allah's angel (Jabriel), yet i thought that I must take a single step to make the readers understand the negative effects of EGO. I can also write more effects likewise, The person who has EGO lives alone (no one love him/her by heart), People come to him/herself only for their own mean and many more you can derive from your own life or examples available within society.

A person's knowledge may lead him/her to the Sky but EGO brings to the earth... Don't forget, finally: EGO KILLS

      Yes, indeed we are far to full of ourselves and our own sense of importance. It is easy to lose track of the reality. We are only one grain of sand on the beach, that's all and this is surely God's design. Thank you for sharing this wisdom with us.

      What a great story! It paints such a clear picture of what happens when we don't have a humble heart. Blessings my friend.
