“The Ego is your Friend.” Those words are fighting words to most self help and spiritual teachers. So many teachers tell you your ego is your ENEMY. How can a part of you be your enemy? That just doesn’t make sense to me. Because I had this question, the answers have been coming the past few weeks.
In this interview with Lilou, Panache Desai tells us that “When you can start embracing your ego, and accepting your ego, and understanding that that allows you to individually be [you] in this infinite ocean of oneness; it’s your ego that allows you to express yourself uniquely. How brilliant is that? So when you start embracing your ego and understanding its function, it becomes your friend and then it works with you and for you, in your life, instead of against you.”
