At every step along the way our ego can hinder us or set us on the wrong path.
When we are beginning it is easy to discount the teacher,
Resisting any information that doesn't confirm what we already believe.
When we improve we notice our growing power,
Basking in newfound strength and understanding.
When we teach we see others who know less than us,
And harden the belief that we are greater.
No one is immune to the pitfalls of ego, from the beginner to the master.
