more interesting than me

I wonder to what extent spiritual endeavor rests on a proclivity/necessity/need to find something more interesting or important or compelling than I am.

I guess I am thinking of having children, which, assuming anyone likes their children, will put a major dent in our egotisms. But perhaps, with some practice, the love of God might do the same thing ... you can only pretend so long before the rubber hits the road.

On the other hand, perhaps the whole shooting match is nothing but same-ego-different-day.
