“Ego is the glue that holds soul into body”

I was introduced via podcast to Guru Singh recently. He attributed the above quote to Yogi Bhajan, whom I currently do not know. A lot of times I see or hear people talking about getting rid of the ego, suppressing the ego, or letting the ego “go”. We would die without the ego and it is there to protect us. But like a petulant child, it can drive us crazy when it is overactive. I guess this is why meditation works and focusing on breathing allows the ego to, in a sense, take a nap. It will never go away, so make friends with it. Care for it. Understand its nature.
