Ruby Wax on loving your ego

I’d like to recommend this hilarious talk by Ruby Wax that was given in London’s Conway Hall.

Ruby Wax – On Loving Your Ego from The School of Life on Vimeo

Hang on a minute … ‘loving your ego’‽ … isn’t Buddhism supposed to be about Not Self, getting rid of the ego? Go the distance, right to the last of the 25 minutes and see how she ends the talk. It’s wonderfully moving.

Your thoughts?

    I can’t hate my ego!

    “My name is Ego I’ll be with you ’till your last breath
    Right here’s a small list of all the things that scare me to death
    I can’t stand things that I can’t understand
    and I especially hate things I can’t command
    I don’t like the unfamiliar and I’ve got to be first
    but I tell ya, without me you could never be a Mandela
    there would be no Muhammad Ali without me
