The positive ego is the one that turns the off-balance feeling of a correction into a hunger to make it the new reference point for progress. You're not expected to find the whole way by yourself. The negative ego is the one that says it's more important to look like you already know, that retracts at a reflection. Listen, you're not gonna lose your ego in this lifetime. The ego is the embodiment of the supreme, so use it towards uplifting ends. Almost nothing is more hollow and pedantic than a yoga teacher preaching at you to lose your ego. Use that shit for good. Words, Benjamin Sears.
