So... can you elaborate a little more? A lot of people dont believe in the existence of the soul (not my case) and they are no ego persons.
Can you explain your point a little better?
Once there was a common man who had an uncommon sense. People of his small town went to him with their problems and some others like to be with him
and listen to him.
One day a man came and asked "What is Ego? They say its bad for one to have it. How can one over come it?"
The common man replied, "Ego is self-awareness. You need it to set and attain your goals. But be careful because it's like nails on your finger and
should never be left to grow more than necessary to be able to hold the grip."
The ego is the medium of our expression whilst we live here in this physical world which some call duality (or physicality). It is also the vehicle of
our experience of Life.
