Ego vs Master

There are only two options: either you listen to the master or you listen to the ego.


Ego vs Master

 

..if you don’t follow masters, you will be following your ego

People ask me, ‘Why do we have to follow masters?’ I tell them, ‘You don’t have to follow masters. But if you don’t follow masters, you will be following your ego, that’s all. There are only two options: either you listen to the master or you listen to the ego.’

If you are a little uncomfortable, if you want to change, then follow the master’s path.

Master is the being who has already achieved eternal bliss, nithya ananda*. If you follow him you will also reach that state. As for your ego, you know what it has achieved so far and  what it is heading towards! If you are happy,

comfortable, contented and blissful in the path in which your ego is already leading you, then you can follow your ego. Nothing is wrong with that. If you are a little uncomfortable, if you want to change, then follow the master’s path.

There are only two things, master and the mind. If you follow the master, you cannot follow the mind. If you follow the mind, you cannot follow the master.

There is a beautiful word, ‘na maha’. It means, ‘not mine’, ‘I am not’ – I surrender the ‘I’ and ‘mine’ at the feet of the master or god.

Glossary:

* Nithya ananda – Eternal bliss.
