Ego's Religious Creed
In these things three I believe:
That I must survive,
That I must gain approval,
That I must gain control.
And my world will be built on these pillars three:
Manipulation of myself and those around me;
Control of my surroundings and myself;
Denial of anything that I may be unable or unwilling to deal with.
And I will resolutely march on,
In defiant ignorance of pain and suffering,
That I inflict on myself or others,
For the gilt carpet of threaded pain covers it all.
And this carpet I will continue to expand,
Until I cannot,
For when I stop,
It will be the end of me,
Because I believe deep inside me,
That my very existence depends upon this charade.
So help me God,
But remember that I will be rejecting all the help you do offer,
For I am the Ego,
And it is what I do.
