Just a small rant about the idea that we should be egoless and unified and one without a trace of individuation – POPPYCOCK! If that was the ideal, we wouldn’t all be in separate bodies to begin with! In my opinion, the ideal is to integrate the ego, or individual perspective, with the idea of connectiveness and an expanded perspective, while retaining the integrity of BOTH. Being grounded with expanded consciousness. Yeah. It’s very spiritual to be spiritual, but people with egos have more fun. (LOL – should make that into a bumpersticker.) Your inner being doesn’t give one whit whether you have toast or a muffin for breakfast, but your ego sure has a preference – that’s part of the fun of life in physical reality!
