If it were that obvious wouldn't humanity automatically make the choice for love?
How does one determine from the ego, how to not be egoic?
If one knows the spirit and Love of God why would the spirit choose anything other than love and spirit?

Are you suggesting that everyone knows the difference and still lives between two poles or bounces from one to the other unconsciously? Or are you suggesting that by sheer determination one can rise above the ego and recognize the Spirit within?

How could the ego become clear?

If the now is perceived from confusion of the ego, what would it tell us about ourselves if we recognize confusion as normal?

If you know that you don't know how would you know "you know" the Spirit Self?
