Pursuing Dreams and Ego Needs
I have had a long hard struggle to pursue my dreams, follow my passion and achieve my goals. As I also grow spiritually, I have become aware that there are ego needs and higher order needs. When I do what I love, I feel connected and fulfilled, it feels good. I do want to help people but it also makes me feel good therefore it is feeding my ego needs. Can I still do what I love in my field and help people at the same time, knowing it feels good, but that it also serves a higher purpose? Can I still work towards enlightenment? (I am not using spirituality to obtain physical rewards, rather I am trying to live in two worlds, the physical and the spiritual).
