Do You Have Spiritual Ego?
That Western practices of meditation and yoga can actually inflate the ego, rather than lower it is, in fact, not a ‘new revelation,’ but a study revealing what’s commonly known as a “spiritual ego.” This results when an individual’s spiritual practice make him or her FEEL more ‘in tune’ and ‘better’ than others. In addition, spiritual ego can be triggered by various ‘classes’ in spiritual development when the class instructor doesn’t emphasize our Oneness and long-term dedication to service to Earth and Humanity. In my experience, revealing this to one affected by this phenomenon may or may not effect an adjustment. ~ Don Chapin
