Stepping out ofthe bureaucracy of ego

It is important to see that the main point of any spiritual practice is to step out of the bureaucracy of ego. This means stepping out of ego's constant desire for a higher, more spiritual, more transcendental version of knowledge, religion, virtue judgement, comfort or whatever it is that the particular ego is seeking. One must step out of spiritual materialism.
