Oh, that is right, you don't have an issue with Ego, because Ego is alive and well.
When attempting to move beyond Human Condition, well my friend, Ego will do EVERYTHING to stop you. When you move past the Human Condition Ego suffers a form of Death. Ego ceases to be relevant in your life and will fight you or cause you to go into conflict with Ego. Honestly it does not matter what or where or who Ego is. Just know it is a separate intelligence working you while in the Human Condition.
One day that soon turned to evening an elderly man was talking with a younger man near an airport runway. The elderly man lived lifetimes of experience in one life. Fought wars, cared for the sick, ministered to the dying, raised children, marriages and more, much more. This elderly man had suffered as well terrible things in his life no other had experienced. Death surrounded and took this elderly man several times and something snatched the elderly man from deaths clutches each time. The elderly man explained and instructed the young man on many things for the sake and benefit of the young man answering questions as to the nature of life and things. The young man was captivated for hours listening and asking questions while chatting with this Sage.
During the conversation as it came to a close, the elderly man just said a simple line. "I have darkness in my heart and I can't seem to get rid of it. This darkness in my heart stays and never is it altered no matter what I have done to remove it". The young man was bewildered by that statement as the elderly man stated he needed to act on this and do something.
The conversation ended. It was not two days and the young man had broke his neck in a accident. As if the very things revealed to the young man were taboo subjects of Darkness and how it played in each persons life, the tricks, antidotes and what to look out for in other humans, entities and beings. It took the young man months to recover which the young man did and his life was forever changed from that night into his future, though, he may to this day still not know or understand this.
The elderly man drove home that night his 1 hour drive from where these two had met. He reflected about his past and concerned he would die and take Darkness with him into the next life. The elderly man did not want this death to capture him with this Darkness in his heart.
Next day, with no planning the elderly man met another man he barely knew, had an encounter with one or two times of no consequence. The elderly man struck up a conversation with this stranger and not knowing why blurted out, "I have Darkness in my heart and I don't know how to get it out?".
Immediately the stranger reached for the elderly mans hand as like a reaction to swatting a fly landing on you and with the other hand over this elderly heart said a quick prayer in the strangers own language.
Over the next 30 days the elderly mans heart seamed to have hands reworking the heart, like weaving a new tapestry. The Darkness was no longer noticeable.
Then Ego showed up. Not in a friendly way. The elderly man noticed Ego was always moving out of view and going behind to hide and attract negative dark things towards the elderly man.
Realize this my friend. This elderly man had lived many lives in one life. Fought wars, died and come back, seen the other side and much more that he will not speak of. This elderly man is real and he was introduced as to how and why this world works as it does with the humans on it.
Even with all this direct knowledge and experience and having been their and done that, his Ego was fighting him in a death match not allowing him to be free to explore Divine things even though, this elderly man had been in Divine presence and working to remove Darkness.
The elderly man finally stopped Ego, grabbed it, and pulled it right in front of him. It was a being, a living thing, more than a energy or idea or part of the psychology. Ego plays the Human Psychology. Ego had form, intelligence, and strength of will. It was a awesome thing to face. Both troubling and infuriating. So, the elderly man held Ego and with help nailed it to the ground, muzzled and chained it, and did not allow Ego to move one inch. Ego was set off to his right side so he could always see Ego and being on the right side gave Ego its place of respect and standing. Ego, he discovered, was influencing a aspect of himself with Ego having shaped itself over the years for the elderly mans survival. The elderly mans decision to move towards a heart centered life threatened Ego. Ego was reacting as though it was going to die and was fighting for its life with all means necessary. Even employing Darkness. There were no limits Ego would have stopped at. Ego was facing it's own death as it knew it. You see, the elderly man was changing and evolving in Divine Love and Ego was threatened.
Once the elderly man arrested Ego, the elderly man was able to continue his journey into his heart where he then was able to meet up with Darkness. By this time it was discovered Ego was using Darkness to empower and control the elderly man. Now it was time to come to terms with Darkness.
As time went on Ego learned it would not die, but change, and improve and, in time, became friends with the elderly man. Ego now sits next to, on the right side of, and against the right leg of the elderly man purring as a kitten in the body of a Lion. It is happy beyond happy and in love with the elderly man. Whenever the elderly man thinks of Ego he pets Ego and purrs back sweetness and delight in having such a wonderful companion as Ego. As time progressed Ego became less of a presence in the elderly mans life and has since nearly moved on to other opportunties.
Ego has to be tamed my friend. Ego is tamed in a different manner than Darkness and Ego must be tamed FIRST. For it is Ego that will twist and turn your psychology in ways that makes you emperor for a day.
This is from another person and their bought with Ego.
During a conversation with the elderly man, a sincere women of high intelligence asked questions in challenging ways. As if to Challenge the elderly man and what he could do. She must have been from Missouri for everything was "show me" first before I believe. The Master confronted her with her Ego and after some explanations left her to think about things. This is what occurred next.

Questions to Ego
Wanna have some fun?
Who are you?
I am part of you, part of the Divine, part of earthly existence. You need me. You really need me…
Why do I need you?
I am your protector, your conscience, your force-field, your shield from all humanly things. I do this for you, as you, as part of you.
Can I get through life without you?
You could, but you can’t separate from me. I’m along for the humanly ride.
Have you been with me through many lifetimes, or do I get a new ego/you every time?
Aw c’mon, that isn't’ fair. I’m here now, isn’t that all that matters?
No, really, I want to know. Were you with me in Greece?
Shhh… yeah I was. And in China for those 900 years – geez, I thought you’d never give up that body. Ok, I was there in Japan, too. I really worked with you there. Then, in San Francisco – remember how much you needed me to succeed? I was there, holding you up, putting things in place for you, making you successful. It was me – ego – me, me, me. I did those things for you.
Cool. So what are we doing together now?
If I told you that, you’d kill me. Haha. Your mother made a deal with me. You were too small to remember. So far, I’ve kept my end of the bargain.
Well, Ego, she’s been dead for almost 50 years. I’d say you’re free of your obligation, wouldn’t you? You worked with Pride and Shame and Vanity and Integrity, too. You guys were like a tag team. She must have made a deal with all of you. So… what are we doing now?
I’m making it look like I’m protecting you. That’s what you want, isn’t it?
On some level, it would be nice. But since you just admitted you’re making it look like your protecting and not really protecting me…. That begs the question – why do I need you at all? This fake it till you make it shouldn’t be your game.
Trying to distract me won’t help. It won’t get you out of it. Tell me what you’re doing or we’re doing together.
Hmmm… I’m preparing you for the next level.
What level? Here on earth or afterwards? If you’ve been with me for thousands of years, shouldn’t you have succeeded by now?
I am part of you. There is no success or failure.
Ok, duh. Well, I love you for being with me, for doing what you think needed to be done. I love you for defending me – even against myself.
That’s a start.
I know you’re there when all the tough times got even tougher. And you’re there when all my seeming victories happened. But what is your role?
I munch up all your energy whether it be from success or failure and hand it back to you disguised as self-confidence and worth. Really, you neeeeed me.
Oh , you’re the reason I’m so tired! Haha How about you sit in the caboose and I take the wheel for awhile? I’d love you even more if you did that.
Not sure I can do that… I am you, remember?
Oh yes, I remember. And, since you are me, I get to make changes. I’m pressing a different button on the radio now. I love you and I set you free from your obligation to my mother, your obligation to me. You can stay or go. Ego, you need to find peace with that.
Really? I’m free? I want to hang around, if you don’t mind. I’ve been with you forever you know.
You have to hush now, and let me go on without you. No more chatting in my ear. No more trying to control every emotion and mood. Shhhh…
Just like that?
Well, you want me to love myself, right? Isn’t that what you’re all about?
Actually, I use fear more than love, but that’s another story.
Yeah, I get that. You’re pretty good at it, too. Always telling me “bad things will happen if I don’t allow ego to show up and protect me.” I hear you. All too familiar. It’s my turn now. I don’t need to be afraid. You did your job, and I love you for it. Now sit back there and be quiet.
