According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, the ego is the main figure in nature and it separates us. It is the evil, the will to harm the other, the desire to be above others, to demand respect and control, and to feel that I determine everything. Nature has given us the ego to help us develop from the animate level to a higher degree of existence. We do not desire the death of the ego since nature did not create anything unnecessarily. We need to understand how to use the ego properly, like a lever that helps us rise and grow. It is a negative force that helps us be positive. It has the ability to elevate us to the rank of holiness when we attain the force of love and unlimited bestowal.
