The spiritual ego is like the driver of an autonomous vehicle. The driver of the vehicle allows the Artificial Intelligence (AI) to steer the vehicle, but the driver, the spiritual ego or highest self, can take control of the vehicle from the bodily ego at any time.

Spiritual Ego is Ego. Ego is I + Eye + Will

Spiritual Ego emerges within The Fabric of Consciousness as a consequence of the Intensification of Consciousness. It is important to note that intensification to the point of egoic awareness does not entail any separation from the Fabric of Consciousness. A Spiritual Ego remains fundamentally embedded within the Fabric of Consciousness.[2]

Nevertheless, a practical separation from the Fabric of Consciousness is attained at the point of intensification when a "boundary" between the "I" and the rest of the fabric is instantiated. As long as the boundary is maintained, the intensification may be classed a spiritual ego. Without the boundary, ego merges into the Fabric of Consciousness and identity is lost.

"I had begun to have what I called anxiety attacks--shots of driving energy that sometimes made it difficult to concentrate on daily tasks. I was consumed with a mixture of panic, fear, and anger. Yet at the same time I was aware of a gentle, deep connection with a new spirituality, an unfamiliar source inside me that was expansive, joyful, and peaceful."[3]
