Ego death -is a "complete loss of subjective self-identity". The term is used in various intertwined contexts, with related meanings. In Jungian psychology, the synonymous term psychic death is used, which refers to a fundamental transformation of the psyche. [By definition]
What does Egodeath mean to me?
It's a detachment of identification with self. Letting go of ego, releasing the perspectives associated with the separation of all beings. A void leading to a point of singularity. Not just humans, but all things alive. When I use the word ego, I don't refer to it in a traditional way meaning a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance but rather from an Eastern philosophical view as the named self, the self of self-consciousness of self-recognition as when you say [I AM]. The "I".
Eye don't believe there are words in the human language that truly describe the experience of an egodeath, but nothing is the same after.. at least not for a while. Eye remember asking my friend "Whats it going to be like when I go home?" and although a literal question, it was also metaphorical. Eye realized that my home is my body and that "I" am only a vessel of an infinite consciousness. Energy in essence, and that eye am only an infinitesimal fragment of it, yet the whole. “The wave is the same as the ocean, though it is not the whole ocean. So each wave of creation is a part of the eternal Ocean of Spirit. The Ocean can exist without the waves, but the waves cannot exist without the Ocean.” -Paramahansa Yogananda
This is to know yourself as everything, but to feel yourself as nothing. You see this where eye believe the term egodeath comes in because it is ideally the death of the ego, the coming into a divine humble spirit. But the ego never really dies, its kind of like the metaphor, life/success is a journey where you're the driver, and choose the passengers in your car, who is in control of the aux, who's in the backseat and how many stops your making, YOU control the ride ultimately. The wheel is your actions and determines where the car actually goes, higher consciousness is shotgun with the aux which are your thoughts and set the tone for the ride, the rear view mirror is your past/traumas and every so often checking it helps make safer changes, then theres ego which can come but is not allowed to give suggestions, opinions, or say a thing about the ride. Ego is simply along for the ride and if gets out of control is kicked out the car. Extra passengers are okay but if they cause too many stops it slows the journey. Last but not least your baggage is in the trunk, if theres too much you can't see so the less the better. Your the only one who can stop the car, symbolically.. nothing can stop you in life if you don't let it, and you allow what slows you down.
The first time I experienced egodeath I thought my life was changed forever and although it was a catalyst, that didn't mean my ego was dead forever. Eventually I began to realize that I am constantly killing my "self" everyday, every minute, every moment. Constantly detaching, and remembering that I am you and you am I. Everything is connected, separation of identity is a facade and is what keeps the human race from ascending. No matter how much eye know about metaphysics and spirituality it is undeniable that in every moment there is a choice to be made, this choice is the duality of the paradigm yet is the singularity in omnipresence. In every moment eye can choose to see myself as separate or feel myself as everyone, as whole. To me egodeath is only the beginning of a new beginning.
