How to control your Ego?

Someone asked how to know what parts of the ego to fix.  Sheykh Abdul Kerim Efendi says to start with the obvious - whatever you notice at the moment.  Once you get the obvious, then the hidden tricks of the ego will show themselves.

First, work to finish anger. It is the ego declaring its lordship. Anger is a veil that prevents other things from opening to you. Anger finishes your good deeds. Swallow it.  Any word you say when angry adds fuel to the fire.
