Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I always say that the purpose of life is to go out of our "I," our ego, and in this way we try to find our true nature.
Do not forget that when we practice the spiritual path we should not be creating a bigger "I.”
Instead, we say that a spiritual person is someone who—as much as possible—tries to create less "I."
In our normal life, we have so much "I." This is the root of our problems.
This means that because of the "I" there is a difference between our normal life and our spiritual life. In our normal lives we have too much “I,” and that is the problem. Then we practice the spiritual path and try to have less "I." In this way we create a separation between our regular life and our spiritual life.
Many people who practice a spiritual path create more "I." They do not realize the root of the problem.
Who does not allow you to become a spiritual person? Nobody—only your "I." This means that always, in any moment, at any time you can practice. No matter what exactly you are practicing on the spiritual path, whenever you feel more "I" then you need to realize that this is not the right way to practice.
Whenever you are not happy, whenever you are suffering, in this moment you are always feeling "I."
Therefore, it is always important that we do not forget that we practice the spiritual path because we want to reduce the “I.”
When there is less “I,” there is more happiness. "I" makes your life very hard and very difficult. "I" is the source of the problem.
Question: Who can make less "I?”
You can, nobody but you can!
Question: What method can you use to make less "I?”
Compassion and unconditioned love.
Do not forget that we are all a little crazy!
