As old as I am, I never really had a clear understanding of 'ego' until I read Tolle's "A New Earth".The point that impressed me the most was the comparison of 'dark' being the ego and 'light' coming from the heart. He states that when we become aware of this point, the light goes on and cark cannot exist in light. It was really an ah-ha moment for me.
I have become more tolerant of people who are egotistical, as I understand that most are not aware of this life condition. Of course, I suppose some are arrogant enough to just not care how they come accross.
Thank you for letting me share.
