Does the incarnation of God has ego?

[Shri Jayesh Pandey asked: By worldly logic, God's power should be under full control of God i.e., God's power should be egoless. But it's not true in reality.

For example: Lord Hanuman and Lord Kartikeya. You have told us that Lord Hanuman is Lord Shiva's incarnation whereas Lord Kartikeya is an incarnation of Lord Shiva's power. Both have their own ego that is ego of the unimaginable God inspite of Lord Kartikeya being an incarnation of power which according to worldly logic should be under full control of its possessor.]

Swami replied:- You are talking baseless statements, which are spoken by ignorant illiterates. Have you gone to such a high stage to say that Hanuman and Kartikeya have their own ego? I never said that Kartikeya is the incarnation of the power of Lord Shiva. Even if you consider like that, there is no difference between power and possessor of power (Śakti Śaktimato rabhedaḥ). You are running through bad days and hence, you are talking like this. Where is the question of control when the power and possessor of power are one and the same? Suppose you have the power of telling poetry and I want to honour your power of telling poetry and not you, can I garland your power of telling poetry separately without putting the garland in your neck? Please apologise to God Hanuman and God Kartikeya for speaking like this. If you consider Me as your Guru, this is My sincere advice to you in your welfare only.
