Very happy you were able to see the light
I would like to apologise if my post came across as offensive in any way. I was just annoyed that his genuine nature had been undermined by multiple posters not interested in asking the advice of a bodhisattva nor in discussing the Dharma nor bothering to read into who they were so harshly judging properly but were only out to promote dischord, Anyway to answer your question, Yes, I don't think having a desire to crush another's ego's is AT ALL healthy,, for the mind to harbour thoughts & perceptions like that is poisonous to the heart (meaning us all ) be careful in how you project your own frustrations onto others. one should learn to overcome ones own ego through observing critically even the nature of our critical observation watching if it stems from egoistic thoughts or compassionate feelings..... once you have your ego under your control (instead of the other way round) compassion is a natural feeling as the OP described Don't feel down about the retail, always try to remember the buddhas wise words. Know it's just a phase, so to remain optimistic & be encouraging for all to join the many awakening souls at this auspicious time gaining momentum in spreading the pure wisdom of the pure Dharma to all suffering sentient beings.
For the record, were not here to feel superior, were here to make friends spreading love peace & happiness with our wisdom about the correct path to attain these illusory states of liberation in this illusory world.,... the cosmos is just the dream of god. make love with nature naturally & nature with love you. may all beings be happy.
