The Nature of Ego

One of the blocks that comes along the way on our spiritual journey is Ego.

The thing about ego is that it camouflages itself very well and appears to be a faithful friend. So how do I identify it within myself?

Ego is the social mask we wear. It is sustained by power and so it will try and control. However it lives in fear of being powerless.

Ego very quickly gives an opinion; it does not allow me to be the detached observer.
It is in fact intolerant. Ego has no patience.

Ego cannot tolerate the praise of others. It comes in through the door of criticism.
Ego only sees weaknesses and mistakes of others.
Ego inspects others but does not inspect the self.
Ego does not accept correction but gives correction.
Ego comes with many qualities and skills but not with many virtues.

Can I identify the Ego within me?

Om Shanti
