The ego,which is of primary importance in our life,  uses discretion and makes valuable decisions, directing our life.  This of course, usually works well, but when the ego becomes inflated, it can destroy it’s benefit.  The soul needs to be  equalized with the ego, or I should say, that the ego needs to understand the importance of the soul, and work together to bring about beneficial results for our best persona ( the way we want to be seen and act in the world).  There are many more unseen influences in our unconscious regions, of what I will discuss at another time.  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.
