why ego matters.

from the contrast essay- “This may be one of the reasons why the ego exists. The function of the ego is to be enslaved, so that consciousness knows what it's like to be enlightened. For consciousness to know itself, it must first trap itself in delusion. We treat the ego as a hindrance instead of a necessary part of the spiritual path. “

that identity is beautiful. not an illusion. to say is an illusion is to rob it of its sincerity. of life's game. renders it meaningless, deceptive. renders confusion and dissonance of the soul. there is a place for ego and identity. perhaps there are modes of being. not one usurpacious nature of being.
