Avatar Adi Da defines the ego, or separate self sense, as an activity rather than a “thing” or “entity”. He teaches that this activity is an unconscious pattern, enacted by all in every moment, and that it can be seen as various forms of “avoidance of relationship”.

Only through this understanding are we able to affect human conflict in any real and lasting way.
