Our mind’s guardian is ego, the feeling of separateness and superiority. It is stuck very deeply in our hearts. In this book the Master shows the sure path to diminishing the influence of the ego on us. And a smaller ego means greater comfort in life, less problems, more lightness and joy. Unfortunately, our world cultivates ego with enthusiasm and this is the reason why there are so many unhappy people in it.
The illness of egoism and ignorance has bothered this world for a long time. The world in its madness claims that it is just the way it has to be and that this is the most proper of all states. But if every one of us is sick then Love sets right proportions and administers medicines according to our needs. Love is the best of all medicines. It is unspeakably sweet sometimes, and sometimes received outwardly as a bitter fruit of our own deeds. It is bitter, but when we understand the lesson, it becomes the lasting foundation for our own higher good.
The Sun as giver of all joy and felicity – state of well-being characterised by emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy – overpowers the illness and ignorance of egoism and ahamkara, the false ego that proclaims I, Me, Mine! The Sun – following its path daily – is the naisargika atmakaraka – the symbol of the self in the world of matter. The self in the world of matter is on a journey of eternal return to its source – all joy, all happiness, all love. In other words, Sat, Chit, Ananda.
