The ego does not live for the Truth; it lives for its own survival. And to live for one’s survival makes any sense only in the presence of challenges to survival. If there are no challenges to survival, whose survival are you protecting and living for?

Therefore, if you are to live for your own survival, it is incumbent, imperative that you first of all create threats to your survival. If there are no threats, what is there to protect? If there is nothing to protect, what is there to do? If there is nothing to do, why are you alive?

So, to be alive you need problems, threats, challenges. That’s what we do all our life. We keep creating problems for ourselves—just so that we can somehow justify our existence. Just to live, you are turning your life into hell!
