    It is the Id the part of the mind in which innate instinctive impulses and primary processes are manifest, not the ego that needs repressing. The ego gives self-esteem. If we are to love others as self, we first have to love ourselves

    Beautiful Sri T. Exactly what is taught in Buddhism and Christianity. Ignorance is the separation of Ego. Selfishness. Humility and love are the antidote and cure.

    Beautiful, Josh. Even seemingly good actions done with corrupt motivation can lead to more suffering. We have to love our neighbors as ourselves, thinking nothing of the "self" (Ego).

    Great answer Celafoe. Many forget the phrase "love of money" when quoting this scripture. They also tend to forget that the Word of God is always right, no matter who may put up an opinion.

    1 Tim 6:10

    10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
