The Ego is the most questioned and misunderstood part of the metaphysical journey. Defining what the Ego is can be far easier than conquering it. The Ego is your proverbial blessing and curse. It is your identity as an individual and must be developed in order to advance your consciousness. This identity is what separates you from the masses and allows you to stand unique. While the separation or uniqueness is ultimately an illusion, it is a necessary part of your development in order to recognize the internal spiritual being used to develop your higher consciousness. The ego is an insecure and unpredictable character with an insatiable appetite. Its primary motivation is self-importance. It is also the primary drain on your energy and the power you possess.

The drive was peaceful and serene, allowing a chance to review the anticipated visit in my head. Over the next hill and a couple of quick turns, and then the road is straight and narrow following along the river for the next twenty or so miles. But the journey abruptly stopped.

On the edge of a pond one sees a beautiful waterfall cascading into the water below. If one gets carried away in only what they see, then they will not realize that there is a deep cavern behind the tumbling waters. In this cavern is abundant riches beyond the dream of any one person. If one can gain the clarity to see beyond the riches, then a new passageway will emerge. This passageway leads to a grand pyramid within the mountain. Inside this pyramid is the pure Love of the Ultimate Being, a grander gift than any material object. With this gift of the Ultimate Being’s love, no boundaries are known. Only when one can go beyond the outer worlds, can one be ready to receive Love in its purest form.
