I think it was at the third playgroup gathering when Ela experienced the first violation of her rights when another baby grabbed her toy out of her hands...she learned very quickly and did the same to another baby after 2 min. Was that the first time her ego stepped in? Are babies actually born with an ego and start to develop it as soon as they start socializing? Or do they learn everything after they're born?
Whenever I watch Ela playing I'm mesmerized by her purity...she doesn't care how she looks like, or what she's wearing, or what other people think of her, how she has to behave, how she has to act, etc. She just wants to eat, drink, sleep, pee, poop, taken care of and basically have fun.
Like all other babies.
So when exactly do these little angels lose their "purity"? Do we teach them to listen to their egos? Or is there a way to prevent their ego to develop?
After all, many "aware" people try to get rid of their ego later in life....but wouldn't it be easier if it wasn't developed in the first place? Is that even possible?
