Your true spiritual nature is to trust. Your true spiritual nature is to respect. Your true spiritual nature is to love unconditionally. As you go through your life, however, things happen to you and you develop an ego as a reaction of the things that happen to you. People take advantage of your trust and you learn to trust a little less. While respect is natural, disrespect is also learned. Your loving heart is repeatedly broken and love is no longer unconditional. Is it any wonder that people develop prejudices and hatreds for those who are different? Is it any wonder that religions fight against each other to obtain or defend spiritual conquests? Is it any wonder that nations should declare war, genocide and ethnic cleansing upon each other?
