I agree with Aaron that observing and knowing ( without identifying with ) our ego is important to evolve and grow .It is said : ” Those who look outside dream , those who look inside awaken.”
What Aaron Doughty has mentioned in this video especially in the first tip out of the 3 tips ( he shed light on ) is like taking the middle way between the ego and the higher self or as the zen Buddhism says the moderation or middle way between complete abstinence or overindulgence in this physical world as Alan Watts said in one of his seminars or lectures …Example , doing what you enjoy as a hobby or gaining physical wealth is good to seek and have in your life but do not be obsessed with it . Know that you are whole and complete on a spiritual level with or without physical wealth .
The ego could be our best friendly constructive avatar if it is connected to our higher-self through unconditional love, unconditional joy and peace . The potential is unlimited . Be the best you could be and allow the universe or God to bring to you the best match to the best you at the now here present through peace , mindfullness and unconditional love.
“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:4
In other terms , the kingdom of heaven is within you .
The soulutions to the problems and so expanding and growing ourselves on an intuitive , intellectual and spiritual levels are much easier and simpler than we imagine if they emerge out of love , relaxing peacefully , allowing , being mindful in our actions ,in our intentions and in our emotions. In that way , we follow the path of least resistance.
