the power of reality on a growing ego

Intellectual or psychological abuse of a child can also take the form of the child not perceiving that his or her’s ego is acknowledged in relation to its original whole because it cannot connect to an adult parent’s ego if that has been cut off from its psychic background. The child’s relationship to its own wholeness then gets distorted, and it learns not to attend to the feelings and insights that it conveys to the child. The child’s perception of himself through his developing ego is there, but it is completely dependent on the parents’ psychic environment. Through the different types of oppression of the interior embodiment that is transferred to the child. The abuse then contributes to a constant feeling of inadequacy in the child, and to the fact that it cannot rely on its own resources, or be able to use them to its own ability. Instead, the child compensates, and does everything in his power to suppress the relationship it has to the underlying whole that organizes the child’s experiences even in situations that are not connected to the relationship for the original abuse from the adult ego. What remains in the child then when it grows up, is an oversized ego that constantly goes beyond the function it must have, and with a constrained relationship to the psychic whole on which the child and later the adult person are dependent upon. This becomes an unknown end in itself for the ego, to constantly search for the lost connection it has to the repressed whole. This will later lead to intense conflicts in our personality between our inner whole and the exaggerated importance of the ego. This is most often transmitted to people around us and to external events that are compulsively created by us through the influence it has over our lives. This is the mental infection that affects us all and that we constantly, without end, pass on from generation to generation.
