The Heart of Meditation: more Self and ego

In the same way,  it is the Self that gives energy to the ego and enables the ego to perform its function of making you think that the boundaries it sets are the real you.
.
.
The ego is a useful instrument.
.
.
For one thing, if it weren’t for the ego, we would have no feeling of being a personal self at all.
.
.
The ego tells us who we are in a limited, worldly sense: where the body comes from, how old it is, what we like and don’t like.
.
.
So the ego is not always a bad thing, an enemy that we need to pound out of existence.
.
.
It is simply limited and limiting.
