Is it difficult to drop the ego?

Question: How to drop the ego? It’s an everyday struggle.

Acharya Prashant: The ego can never be dropped.

You can only get something that replaces the ego; that out-smarts the ego; that out-attracts the ego, that outpaces the ego.

In the name of ego, all that you stick to, you stick to that because you find it attractive. Now we may keep condemning the ego but the fact is that if you find something attractive, you will not drop it. You drop it when you will get something infinitely more attractive than that.

Pay attention to that.

~Acharya Prashant
