Don't worry about the ego. Just know, you are not the ego. The most important thing is to discover that it is watched, which means: You cannot be it.
Therefore, don't identify with it. Then it starves from lack of attention and soon falls away.
Your victory is in recognizing that you are only the sense of presence, which announces itself through the feeling: I am. Let the 'I Am' - presence stay by itself consciously until it becomes effortless. That is when you feel or say 'I', it automatically means the presence or Being.
