Overview

Have you wondered why things seem to be getting worse all the time, despite all the government programs, law enforcement agencies, doctors, scientists, and others, trying their best to come up with solutions? Have you noticed that every solution offered brings unintended negative consequences? With all the bright people in the world, why are we facing imminent social, economic, political and environmental collapse? Until we can determine that a proposed solution will have only life-enhancing outcomes, we will continue to grope in the dark, trying to solve problems with only limited understanding-and the solutions offered by the limited, fear-based ego will never succeed.
The root problem lies with the ego, a fiction made up by our minds assuming a separate self and a hostile world in which the ego needs to struggle and manipulate to survive. We cannot see reality from the stance of the ego; we can only see its projections based on the past. So our endless struggles will get us nowhere in trying to solve the world's problems, because we cannot get there that way.
This book uses the spiritual technology of the Enneagram to illustrate the nine primary delusions of the ego, and shows how to use this tool to uncover the underlying virtues. Learn how to transcend the limited ego and move into a present-moment awareness of reality and the joy that it brings to you and to your world.
