“We work to bring our semi-tamed ego in line with our higher self so that the ego is an instrument of the soul.” —Jamal Rahman
Have you heard tons of trash-talking about the ego as you’ve been on your spiritual journey?
As we’re connecting with our higher self, it’s common to look down on the ego. But the truth is, in nature we see dualities everywhere: dark and light, masculine and feminine, the sun and the moon.
When we can recognize that our ego is a part of us, we can start finding balance between our ego and our higher self.
