Ego is in fact critical and not to be despised or even “clumsily minimized”.
The thing that’s awesome about Liminality, is that you never lose your “ego”, and in fact you can live in a “liminal state” for your entire life without losing it. The “ego” just sits there like a potential, and just rises up strongly WHEN REQUIRED; otherwise you have the flexibility to be as “spiritual as you want”. “True Spirituality” simply being the act of having “sex” (kibitzing with other) with the Universe (or a part of it).
So you see, most “spiritual people” don’t even rise to the level of being wrong.. since Liminality is the beginning of spirituality.
