The Ego Serves the Purpose to be able to experience Companionship.

There is a lot of talk about the ego being bad. Truth is that there is nothing wrong with the ego per se as long as it is remembered that the ego serves the purpose of Companionship. Companionship can only be experienced through the illusion of separateness. Of course there is no separateness in reality. Reality is Self desiring Love. There are no others. There is only One Self desiring not to be alone. Hence the ego. The ego exists to be able to experience otherness, companionship, not to feel alone. Humankind must simply remember the purpose why the go exists; it is being able to Love and Be Loved in return. All that is here is Self desiring Love, Companionship, Friendship, Togetherness, Warmth. In other words; humankind must simply remember the ego serves the purpose to see otherness where there is none for there is only self desiring Love. Self has engineered itself to see separateness where there is none; there is only Self after all.  Self is the only thing here. Self meeting Self. Love meeting Love.  As long as man and woman, nations too, remain firmly rooted in this understanding, it is smooth sailing.
