How can you say something doesn't exist because you don't believe in it?
Enlightenment does exist. Who are you to tell me differently?
You can't find what you don't believe in. It is about faith. Believe what you want, but I will choose to believe in and stay In the Light, enlightened.
My experience is at least as real as yours.
The ego projects itself to others. This is not inherently good or bad. It's only bad when what is unpleasant to hear is destructive. When unpleasant words are necessary they are constructive.
Are you being constructive or destructive? You sound destructive. Maybe if you include your reasoning for being so you could be seen as being constructive.
The Yin Yang is not just Light, it is also composed of Dark.
You see, Destruction is not bad in itself. It is necessary for Construction to exist. When the Winter comes it destroys most life, because this is how things must be. When Spring comes life arises anew.
If we did not have Winter, than life on Earth probably could not sustain. It would overwhelm and choke the limited resources, there would be no fertilizer, etc.
Who am I to tell you differently?
I am Muzzleflash.

Like i said earlier mate, ego is the wrong word. And again, Nowhere have i said to abandon ego, or get rif of it... but to turn it from self serving and wicked into something good and pure.
