Do I have to join the clash of egos?

Deepak Chopra
Alternative & Complementary Medicine
At the ego level there must be conflict, because "I" knows itselfby clashing against another "I." This clash brings about many formsof evil. War is a vastly expanded version of "I" against "I."Bigotry and prejudice depend upon the same conflict on a sociallevel. Hatred in the name of God is actually disguised ego: yourGod is unacceptable because he doesn't agree with mine.
