The balance of ego is important; too much create barriers from connecting with others, and too little loses our connection with ourselves, alienating perception with a lack of self-worth and acceptance. We need the balance of ego to be. The whole point of living is to experience and learn. Ego lets us understand that. If we had no difference to others and did not understand our connection, we wouldn’t be able to understand ourselves. Ego lets us have our own experience and our lessons to learn. After all, the point of life is to live.
