What do you get when you combine Eckhart Tolle and Anne Lamott? A compassionately humorous yet kick-ass, clear-eyed account of overcoming the ego.
Cate Montana, top network TV sports editor, woke up to the realization that her successful career-driven existence delivered zero happiness and fulfillment. Determined to find both, she set off on what would become a thirty-year spiritual quest, and this is what she discovered: We’re not who we think we are. The ego is an illusion and a trap and only when we recognize the ego for what it is can we be truly, outrageously free.
Beautifully written and fast-paced, The E-Word strips the ego bare in highly entertaining, relatable ways, revealing our erroneous beliefs about “self” and how even common self-improvement processes and techniques actually send us on a wild goose chase away from the very happiness, fulfillment, and wisdom we seek. The book also reveals how the ego co-opts religion and spirituality, dangling enlightenment in front of us as a prize to be achieved rather than the natural flowering of the Great Mind within that shows up after the ego has been put in its place and a vaster consciousness revealed.
A book of liberation and ecstasy, The E-Word lucidly explains how the ego is created, how it thinks, and how its limited mindset can be expanded—not inflated—into a joyous transpersonal perspective that makes isolation, fear and insecurity bad dreams of the past. Stuffed with electrifying insights, funny stories and transformative meditations and exercises, The E-Word is the ultimate how-to guide for discovering the “real you” within.
