' The ego invents duties '...

The ego ceaselessly invents one "duty" after another to keep him so involved in activities,

often trivial, that he is never still enough to attend to the Overself's presence and voice within.

Even many so-called spiritual duties are its invention:

they are not asked of him by the Overself.
