Poet's Notes about The Poem

An ode to Ego
Much has been said in moral and spiritual circles about Ego
But there can be sick and healthy Ego
And surprisingly, the two are interrelated
A sick Ego with lower self esteem is arrogant and inflated

More sickness obviously leads to lower health
The essential Ego of self esteem and self confidence reduces the sick Ego and increase its health
So it is incorrect to condemn Ego as a whole; we have only to increase its 'Wellness'
Ego of self esteem, confidence and acceptance finally expands into infinity with zero illness

In fact the Ego expands to brotherhood and godhood
With zero self conscious, blind arrogant attitude
This is what 'Sufi', 'Vedant', 'Zen' and 'Tao' mean by 'Nirvanik' state
A paradoxical, indescribable and ecstatic mental state!
