      Dear Friends,

      That which separates you from your real Self--the whole and real--is
      your ego. You may wonder how you can cut down that ego or may try to
      tear it down or forget it, but that's not possible. Instead, you have
      to learn to "polish" or train your ego. When the ego becomes aware of
      the Reality, it is trained, and then the ego is useful. If the ego
      does not remain aware of the Reality, then the ego becomes unhelpful;
      it is then harmful or an obstacle.*

      In loving service,

      Swami J
