WHAT THE HELL, IT MIGHT JUST BE EGO, AFTER ALL, AND A LINK TO THE SINGING GURU


. . . my asking you to buy the book and review it at Amazon. The Sufis says, “more invisible than an ant’s footprints on a black rock on the darkest night of the year are the workings of the ego.”

Guru Angad, the second Guru of the Sikhs, the central character, in addition to many other characters, of the sequel to THE SINGING GURU, has a long poem on the ego and how it cannot be eradicated. The line that strikes me the most is:

“Ego is a chronic disease, but it contains its own cure
as well.”

What does it mean? I have spent some time thinking about it and here is what I think it means: just as we have two minds (many, many minds, actually), we have the lower ego and the higher ego. The first constricts us, makes us selfish and small, while the second expands us, allows us to see our connection to the all, tells us to surrender to the vaster universe and become a part of it.

I don’t quite know which of these egos is making me ask you to buy and review the book. It’s more like both. The smaller ego wants success for my own sake, the higher one wants to deliver an important message. So, whichever one it is, here is the Amazon link to the book:
