Pretty spot on, ain't it? ✨
Have you heard about or read the Gnostic Myth of Creation? If you haven't I urge you to read it.
Ego is the expression of the lower False God, The demiurge. It denies the existence of the True God, believing in its ignorance and arrogance he's the One and Only.
On the other hand, our Soul is the expression of the True God, The One who cannot be perceived or known but we all carry within. Also known as the Divine Spark.
Human beings, we are an absolute representation of what's above and beyond. "As above so below". Also it's entirely up to us what we will choose to identify with and strive for - an expression of our free will.
This is a choice we all have to do and work consciously towards the Truth.
