Ego… he’s a clever little tricky devil. Has you believing all sorts of things… some good, but most bad. His agenda? To keep you distracted so you fail to look inward and notice your true Self, which is infinite, formless, invisible, everywhere. You are the un-manifested and the ego is a temporary manifestation. You have confused the two. Be clear which is you… as you move toward ego you feel more fear and confusion… as you move toward pure consciousness, “your timeless, infinite center,” you feel more love and peace.
