Ego and Fog
The ego is like the fog. At times it can be so thick that we cannot see what lies beyond. It is both an illusion and reality at the same time; for it is transient, yet can obscure.
How do we navigate then without losing our way?
Faith in our true infinite selves. Faith in knowing that we can reach the other side even though our physical senses tell us otherwise. Faith in the divinity that we each carry within us that lights the way regardless of the circumstances. Once we are guided by faith, we lift the veil of the unknown, and realize the ultimate truth.
There is no need to get rid of the ego. We transcend the ego.
