A renowned warrior came into a field to do battle.
The first challenger he met was his greatest adversary: Ego.
Both soldiers drew their swords and engaged in battle. They fought for many frantic minutes with no harm coming to either individual; both becoming increasingly fatigued as the conflict went on. But at a crucial moment, when the first warrior had Ego nearly defeated, he misjudged his opponent's strength and was pushed off balance and fell to the ground.
Ego, a smile coming across his face, raised his weapon and prepared to finish the conflict with one mighty swing of his sword.
But before he could do so, a chill breeze moved across the field, and on it sailed an arrow that pierced the armour of Ego, causing him to fall dead to the ground. The first warrior, incredulous, looked to his right and saw a third warrior carrying a bow.
His name was True Self.
