Thank you for your question! 🙂
Consciousness is being “awake.” = ‘Conscious.’
Ego appears when we are asleep, unconscious.
Consciousness is soul consciousness
ego is body consciousness.
Being eternal is an awareness of being conscious.
Being time constrained is unconsciousness, ego.
Consciousness is “being” in the moment. Present. Now.
Ego is living in the past or future, acting.
“I am” because I am conscious.
‘i think my thoughts” because there is ego.
Consciousness/awareness brings stability in my stage.
Ego brings “ups and downs.” Sorrow.
