Although almost all ‘spiritualists’ advocate moving beyond the ego-personality, they do not tell us that at first it is necessary to build the ‘egoic strength’ (polish our ego-personality) in order to move beyond it. (If your ego-personality doesn’t have enough strength/ courage/ fearlessness, it can’t let go of itself – and all its attachments.)
At first, we have to put ourselves at the center of our world, before the understanding dawns that the world is center everywhere, circumference nowhere. This understanding is the foundation of enlightenment.
We can’t put the cart before the horse and expect it to move forward…🙂
