I see a lot of dissolving the ego in the new age community in order to reach self realization. I too used to go on about that in some of my older youtube videos. While it is very true and the core of most spiritual belief systems, I rarely see the point expressed that the ego is also a powerful tool against other egos. To be barren of it, which is actually impossible, can lead to someone else taking the place of yours and that can leave you crippled. Although it hinders self actualization, it's a necessary evil in the matrix construct. You can thank your fellow primates for that.
Let them come who wish to come, And let them go who wish to go, And do not harm to me or mine. -Ancient Icelandic Invitation Formula for the Elven Folk
