Sat Nam. Remembering constantly, that God is the Doer is good preventive medicine for that disease known as "Spiritual Ego". Thanking God and Guru for everything that comes to you -- inner or outer, should help.

When you realize that you cannot even live without God giving you your next inhalation -- that could remind you to be humble and grateful. And don't worry about -- or even try to figure out your "different spiritual stages" --- your assessment will be faulty, and it's not necessary. Let God and Guru guide you and be grateful --- Gratitude is a powerful antidote for Spiritual Ego. I hope this is of some help to you. God bless you, SP

Everyone who walks this path must face his or her ego and recognize it for what it is. There is a most difficult stage of spiritual development called "shakti pad." At that stage one begins to experience siddhis. That is the biggest test of spiritual ego. It is like a fork on the road. You either make it through, or you fall. You cannot destroy spiritual ego. You can only surrender it to the Guru. That act of surrender is hardest when one is experiencing the most spiritual power. This path is finer than a razor's edge. Prayer and surrender are the keys to making it through.

Even when one reaches the highest level of spiritual knowledge, Ego can come charging in and push you down the mountain! Ego is something which we have to be always aware and cautious of, along with other vices like Anger, Lust, Attachment and Greed.
