While I still take pride in things I do, I think I'm comfortable enough in life that I no longer need to protect any ego/insecurities. The major positive things are that I don't get pissed off at the wife or yell, I don't get into fights with strangers in public, not obsessed with superficial things, and I don't get hung up on personal vendettas anymore.

I see ego as ultimately being insecurity. Guys who are insecure about themselves tend to be controlling, hateful (sometimes racist, sexist) aggressive, they talk real big and get upset when people disrespect them, getting people angry is a big thrill for them (relates to the control thing). They're obsessed with trying to be a leader or an "alpha" (if you try to be either of those things, you're clearly not one).

The one negative is that in not as motivated to do certain things. Ego/insecurity can be a great motivator.

Mine died years ago, when I realized my ego was holding me back.

Having an inflated ego can blind a person to realities and experiences that are right there. Trying to live up to my own hype was a driving force in so many things.

I'd like to think I have, but it seems egotistical to think that way.

So I assume it is still there, still influencing me, and I try to adjust myself behaviour and thinking accordingly.

Ive gotten so high once where i separated being from ego.

On one side was myself. The other side was every memory, feeling and experience i had.

All i was , was just emptiness. Vast emptiness. I could see my ego and emotional responses on the other side. It was a very profound experience.

I eventually came back down into an ego driven way

I had another experience once and although very brief lasting nothing more than a few minutes was an exceptional experience where i separated mind from body.

I was absolutley in awe of my sorroundings. Trees , birds , leaves, sky etc. I saw a person walking and i had utter love and compassion fir this person and was amazed my the almightys creation. Just amazed.

I felt if some one cuts my head off, they have killed the body but not me. If i fell out of my window, the body would be hurt but not me.

It was a very mystical experience.

I am glad to have had it.

The way everyone here bickers argues and squabbles lets you know that none of you crazy motherfockas have had your ego die for good. Myself included.

Sounds like you were not high enough for total ego-death matey, Ego death is the total loss of who you are, what you are, and everything about 'you'. all your memories, emotions etc are gone.

Its utterly terrfying and you basically think you are dead & do not exist anymore.
I said 'displeasure' but actually it ended with a profoundly positive experience of realising i could be anything i wanted to be and was the creator of my own universe etc, this was all after pissing myself and atempting to climb out of my window though

striving to kill your ego is in effect an egotistical thing to do, and is one of the way our ego manipulates us. The goal is accepting that you are not your ego.
