“ACCEPT THE EGO AS A NECESSARY TOOL INSTEAD OF EVIL”
No one in the world is superior or inferior than you.
It means you are neither superior nor inferior than anyone else.
Of course, the ego always wants to be special anyway, but our true nature is the same; unconditional love, consciousness, the purest essence.
So what we need to do is stay in its purest essence which is also called the silence or the space, and live in the present moment.
It’s not because of a kind of perception that the ego is evil – it’s another ego that thinks that way – because that’s simply not what we really are.
But we have something called unconsciousness. The ego and ignorance are within the unconsciousness of everyone.
Moreover, it is said that unconsciousness accounts for more than 90 percent of consciousness.
Do you know what that mean?
This means that your unconscious ego will easily behave arrogantly unless you continue to awaken spiritually and pay attention to the present moment.
You don’t have to fight or conquer your ego.
How can you fight against your unconscious ego? How do you conquer it? If you’ve tried it, you’d know.
That’s why we need to keep observing our own words and behaviors in alert, keep awakening.
In doing that, there’s no space in the now for comparative thinking that someone or yourself is superior or inferior. If such a comparison or judgment appears, it means you’re out of the purest essence.
Where it happens, it means that there is an unhealed wound there that the ego tries to protect, so don’t think of the ego as evil, and also don’t identify with them, but you need to accept that fact, and absorb it fully in your purest essence, unconditional love.
In that way, your that part of the ego will disappear from your world.
So just keep staying in alert with yourself.
