"The ego may be clever but it is NOT intelligent. Cleverness is motivated by self interest and it is extremely short-sited. Most politicians and business people are clever... very few are intelligent. What ever is obtained through cleverness is short-lived and always ends up to be self-defeating. Cleverness divides, intelligence includes.
There is nothing you can do to become aware of the ego... it's not an action but rather an alert seeing. Emotions and thoughts become impersonalized with alert seeing - there is no longer a "self" in them. They are just human thoughts and human emotions.
Disidentify with your thoughts and fully experience and acknowledge your emotions. If you are disconnected from your emotions they will manifest on a physical level. If you have difficulty feeling your emotions start by feeling the body from within. Emotion is a mind's reflection of the body... if you really want to know your mind the body will always give you a truthful reflection. So feel the emotion... if there is a conflict between thought and emotion the thought will always be a lie."
- Eckhart Tolle
