Ego or Self Importance

[Self importance is defined here in the same way as 'Ego' in the Arica tradition----ie any negative programming that keeps you out of good feeling states. Self Importance is a far better name and is a slightly different and deeper knowledge concept.  One of the main mind control efforts is to keep everyone addicted to ego reality (eg low tone emotional drama games), and out of essence reality.  You can see with Deliverance the power in invoking the Christ name.]

See: Don Juan


Ego denial

You can see the ego programming in
The Human Assemblage point positions
Levels of consciousness
(the minus states are ego, positive essence programming)
The Petty Tyrant (ego script)
Enneagram personality script types (each has ego fixations, just for starters)
Tone scale (Low tone scripts are ego programming)

Also studying essence programming is helpful
