FALSE EGO

<4>However, if a person with the ego tries to hurt a realized person, because there is no ego in such a person, he will not be hurt but will create compassion for the other person who unjustly tries to do him harm. So he forgives him, or even gives him more love which he does not have.

<5>Wherever there is ego there is no real love, and where there is true love there is no ego.
