Ego refers to itself as “I”. It is the person at the center of your world that experiences itself and life from a subjective perspective. The root of the ego is “mine”, it is your ego that is identified with your body, gender, race, nationality, talents, thoughts and emotions. Your family is your ego’s family. When you say “I”, you are referring to your subjective identity, with a given name.
Establishment of the Ego
Your ego is firmly established in you during your formative years, and you are considered socialised by the time you reach the age of 21, when you are declared an adult. In ancient times a noble lad would be knighted at the age of 21. During the first seven years the focus of the ego is on the establishment of its physical identity, the next seven years its sexual identity is established and during the age of 14 to 21 years the social identity of your ego is established.
Those who seek should not stop seeking until they find. When they find, they will be disturbed. When they are disturbed, they will marvel, and they will rule over all.
Central to the insights of Sigmund Freud was the idea that your ego’s personality consists of autonomous agents that act on your behalf. That you are not one, but many. These agents can be called the personas of the ego.
We like to think that we are in control, but then something in us does the opposite. You decide to stop smoking, but then something stressful happens and you are smoking again or you are having a bad hangover and decide to never drink again, but then the weekend comes around, and you have a drink in your hand. Have you experienced this?
Carl Jung, who worked closely with Freud, after studying many ancient texts, came up with twelve archetypes for personality who derive from the collective unconscious. He proposed that these archetypes direct conscious behaviour but his archetypes eluded systematic study and were regarded as unfathomable. The truth is that in the west, these archetypes can be trailed back to the astrology of the Sumerian period, 3rd millennium DC, in Egypt and in the east the archetypes were taught as far back as the age of gemini, 5th millennium BC.
Tjaart has used the basis of the ancient vedas and astrology to offer a more comprehensive understanding of our personality types and more importantly how each of these archetypes influence how we thing, what we feel and the action we take in the world.
