What The Ego Does

When you decide that you are better or more special than another person or group, you have fallen into the ego trap of comparison. That is how the ego justifies its existence and feels better about itself --- "well, I may not have the money or intelligence or looks of that person, but I am better than that slob over there." Or "I am more spiritually advanced than her." You are special in the sense that you are One with God and you are very holy, but you are not special in the ego view that you are better than others. The ego has to cut down others to feel better about itself.
