Hello to all and first and thanks to the instructors who give their time trying to help us.

I studied all books, courses, lectures related to comprehending the ego and eliminating it, I just have a question, do you mean by comprehending the defect is the normal meditation? because a lot of us can say numerous bad effects of egos intellectually, simply is it concentrating as long as it takes on an event trying to grasp the intuition to understand it?

Yes. comprehension of an eqo requires meditating on some event involving the ego in question. Since you have studied the books and courses you already have the intellectual foundation to do the psychoanalytical meditation. The links below are for reference.

It is a fascinating process. In our imagination we review the event involving the ego without thinking about it.The intuition comes by itself as we pay attention. All that is necessary is to repeat the event in our mind as though replaying a videotape, like a forensic scientist. It helps to ask what our thoughts are during the event. This will result in our being able to list specific thoughts that occured at the time. Then we can review our emotional state in the event. This makes us aware of emotions we did not notice that were present. At this point we may reevaluate what kind of ego we are dealing with. We do not want to assume we already know by playing "pin the tail on the donkey". It may not be the donkey we thought it was at all but some other culprit.

We can ask our Divine Mother for the elimination of the ego when we have comprehended something about it and use our imagination to visualize its elimination.

"Something about it"
Meaning, if the ego is not comprehended entirely, or as it is said, in the 49 levels of the mind, it can still be eliminated to an extent?
Then again, the Master said that only when the "I" is comprehended in all the 49 levels can it then be eliminated. THEN AGAIN, the Master said that ONLY the Divine Mother can penetrate into the 49 levels. This is all very confusing to me.

I guess you will never know if the ego is totally destroyed or not unless the divine mother or father or the being or a master in the internal world says that to you, I guess the ego is comprehended to an extent then the rest of it cannot be comprehended and just eliminated by the divine mother, all are guesses.

Truth and knowledge are not the same thing. There are many lectures on this site and elsewhere by Master Samael and instructors explaining pysychoanalytical meditation. However it is intuitive knowledge that we require in order to eliminate the ego. We can't do it with theoretical knowledge. There has to be Self Observation and Self Remembering.

We must know something for ourself first before we can think of becoming scientists of the soul. A good analogy can be found in modern science where mathematics has replaced natural science. This gives us science that is theoretically heavy and scientists who are erudite in matters far removed in time and space which they cannot verify in their own experience. Meanwhile, we are ignorant of matters that are right under our noses, foremost among these being our own psychology.

The Path is not a game where we collect all the pieces to win. There is a didactic within the consciousness that is not our responsibility. It is the responsibility of our Being and this is why we pray to our Diving Mother for elimination when we comprehend something about the ego. Our responsibility is to be diligent in our practice.

Luke 21:19
In your patience possess ye your souls.
