When the student is ready, the teacher appears. I am in charge of what I say. You are in charge of what you hear. What WE hear is of an entirely different nature, for when our ears become unified, nothing compares. Only the EGO can notice ego. We all have it, I suppose, but so what? There is a unifying principle that happens when we release our hearing to our HP. Our HP meets us where we are at. As my Spiritual Advisor (RIP) used to tell me, "We don't get ready to meet God. We meet God to get ready. The world is addicted to judgment, but WE can reshape OUR perception through Surrender.
