People go on and on, creating big problems out of nothing. I have talked to thousands of people about their problems and I have not come across a real problem yet! All problems are bogus — you create them. Because without problems you feel empty.
You create problems so that you can feel that life is a great work, a growth, and you have to struggle hard.
Remember,The ego can exist only when it struggles, when it fights.
– OSHO – Excerpted from : Ancient Music in the Pines.Chapter #2
Q: How to conquer ego?
Sri Sri: Ego is just a feeling of having a wall between you and others. There is no wall. You belong to me and I belong to you. You are accepted the way you are. Naturalness is the antidote for ego. Be spontaneous! Ego cannot stand spontaneity. Children are so spontaneous. Be like a child.
“The ego always seeks perfection . If you are after money , the ego wants you to be the richest man in the world , the most perfect man in the world . If you are after morality , you want to become the most perfect saint .
A humble person know imperfections , and a humble person accepts his imperfections . And a humble person does not ask for the impossible . It is the ego that always asks for the impossible and fails . And feels frustrated , betrayed , cheated . But again it starts asking the same thing.”
