Can't disagree with you there. What really caught my eye is as you've said, legitimizing and rewarding the ego is the way of western society. It has been this way for decades... just look at any billboard in the city- we've been pummeled with crap since birth. If hazrat inayat khan and other spiritual teachers- human incarnations have found a way, so can we. I know this is in part why you meditate.

Another thing to consider is what the Ego means to the individual. Without trying to sound to defensive could he have meant Competitive? Was this taken out of context? And to that extent, I wonder how many of us in the West understand the Ego? Growing up, I never saw Ego as a bad thing and we've had some interesting discussions here on how to differentiate personality and ego- something not so easily understood... Are they different? Do people mistakenly associate parts of the personality with the Ego? Just sayin'  Roll Eyes  Smiley
