All humans have ego, and it is one of the greatest mysteries to those of us who have never experienced duality. Make no mistake, ego is the antithesis of love, and many of you know this. It is the balance of this ego with love that is critical. All of these duality attributes are appropriate, given to you in love, imprinted upon your very biology. It is what you do with it that is so honored. Ego, tempered with love, becomes appropriate. It is in its raw, untempered form that it becomes the enemyof love. Think about it. Isn't it odd that a poison becomes a healing substance when love is added? That's the way it is with ego.
