Accept my words only when you have examined them for yourselves;
do not accept them simply because of the reverence you have for me.
Those who only have faith in me and affection... continue...

vertical line Does your body have a heart, does the earth have living beings, does the sky have a cloud? They are not two, and they are not one.

vertical line yes i think all beings have ego, but some can notice it, at this point it is not so strong.

it constantly assaults the mind of ideas and some people when they do not notice are swept away by the clinging, desire, attachment complex instigated and encouraged by ego. and or sense of ego,

i think it is a reaction, pro-active situation, one can be compelled to behave by reaction to the outside world as persieved by ego (small mind) or be proactive in searching at every opportunity for ego mind and understand what it is (big mind).

ego is frightened by imagined threats to it, and acts accordingly to preserve the status quo of the mind, this is another case of not seeing the forest for the trees.
