A meditation to check your ego

Ah, the alarming ego. It gets a bad rap, but your ego may actually be the key to happiness. If you know how to work with it. Try this simple on the question “Who am I?

5-Step “Who Am I?” Meditation

  1. Settle into your body.

Come into a convenient, seated posture, with your eyes closed, and your hands folded in your lap. Augment your back, and let your chin move back so you feel as if your head is being suspended by a cord from the ceiling. Scan your body, observing and softening any tightness in the shoulders, face, thighs, belly, arms, and hands. Take five deep inhalations and exhalations.

  1. Focus on your breath.

Become attentive of the rise and fall of the breath. Let your breathing be instinctive and relaxed as it brings you into the current moment. Feel the coolness of the breath as it flows in the nose and the warmth as it flows out. Attention where you feel the breath in your body. Do you sense it in the chest and shoulders? In the diaphragm or belly?


  1. Quiet the mind.

Appreciating the flow of the breath, puff with the thought “I am.” Feel the energy of the words mingling with your breath, flowing into your SIBinner body. Then, with the exhalation, feel the space that these words leave in your consciousness. Continue to repeat the authentic mantra “I am” without attaching any other thoughts to it. Stay here for several minutes if you can, granting yourself to become more and more relaxed.

  1. Practice inquiry.


As your mind quiets, begin to drop in the question, “Who am I, without words? Without thoughts? Without memories or emotions?” Pay attention to the awareness that opens up. If words or emotions arise, grant them to be there. Identify them—“thoughts,” “sadness,” or “confusion”—and return to the question. You’re not looking for an answer. Look past the answers that arise to experience the bare awareness that is your sense of being, of pure existence.

  1. Rest in awareness.

This sense of pure existence is there, and as you practice this meditation, it will finally reveal itself. Continue your inquiry, and see if you can lightly rest for a second or two in the wordless awareness that immediately follows the question. The opening into awareness may only last for a few seconds. If you get hung up on your thoughts, start over: Return to the breath, and the mantra “I am.” Then, ask the question again, and notice what arises. Stay with the practice for as few as 5 minutes or as many as 20 minutes. Then open your eyes, and return to your day.

Does philosophy mean anything in your life?

Philosophy most definitely means something to my life. For the past five or so years, I have been trudging along a conscious way of living. I have paid attention to my health as a whole and have tried my best to live according to my own understanding of morality.


In this time, I have learned so much about myself and my lifestyle, about happiness and about integrity. By definition of Patanjali “yoga chitta vrpnyitti nirodhah”, which means “yoga is stopping the patterns of the mind”. For me, this is the supreme definition. Silence of the mind renders us free to directly experience the present moment, which can be a lot harder than it sounds if you are living in modern society. The conditions of pnymy humanity continue to lead me away from this present moment and thus, happiness. For example, one of my own mental patterns is to compare myself to others. My ego swings back and forth from superiority to inferiority, not always, but it does happen. I think this is a nearly universal pnyhuman habit and one that greatly alters our perception of reality, of what is real. It is a fear-based pattern that can make me act and react to life in ways that are out of sync with who I truly am. It creates suffering, more than what is normal for a person, and it leads me away from the divine path. Philosophically, yoga is a lasting solution to this hell, provided I work hard.
