Egos are ugly things. They are also deceptive things. They appear when we feel vulnerable, offering us the promise of protection. But the protection they provide is really just an ugly mask. Next time you notice yourself wearing the ugly mask of ego, remind yourself that the more beautiful you is behind the mask. Allow yourself to drop the mask and see what beautiful things happen.
