If you want to find out what your present purpose is (ego or soul), look at where you are devoting most of your time and energies, and the goals you are trying to achieve.
When you clearly identify what you are working towards—the purpose behind what you are doing—you will understand your present needs and know what levels of consciousness you are operating from.
Your ego needs correspond to the lower levels of motivation (consciousness).
Your soul needs correspond to the upper levels of motivation (consciousness).
