    As one starts to become mindful, one’s sense of ego in oneself diminishes.

    At the same time one starts to become more aware of the sense of ego in one’s environment.

    One cannot bring improvement by pointing out the ego to those who are demonstrating it..

    All one can do to bring improvement is to simply be mindful.

      Regarding mindfulness, it’s good to use the notion of 4-flows or in each dimension. I think a good example is the Dalai lama. He is mindful and likeable as well. He operates in a world of egos and at his social level, operates in a world of giant egos. He comes across in a friendly and likeable manner and people generally like him. He is not trying to get people to like him, so what is he doing?

    The key significance of “I” is that it acts as a REFERENCE POINT.

    In Algebra, we have,
    – The Remainder Theorem
    – The Factor Theorem
    – The Fundamental Theorem of Algebra

    These theorems refer to specific pointers in Algebra that come from its postulates.

    We use these names as reference points for those relationships.

    Similarly. “I” is a reference point for a mobile unit associated with a set of considerations.

    That set of consideration continually changes just like the mobile unit continually ages.

    There is no permanent “I”.

    The key significance of “I” is that it acts as a REFERENCE POINT. Any significance given to “I” apart from the above is categorized as EGO.

      Yes, and just like every other thing, the I is ever changing, always in flux. There is no good argument against this that I know of.
