In the words of Bhagwan Satya Saibaba,"Egoism is a thorny bush ,which when planted and fostered, makes us suffer.It makes enemies of close friends and does not allow men to work together.Grief follows ego like shadow."
"Envy and greed also emanate from the ego and have to be carefully watched and controlled.Like a tadpole's tail the ego will away when you grow in wisdom.Ego must fall away;if it is cut the poor tadpole will die.So, don't worry about the ego;develop wisdom"
I like your photo with the dog, so cute, similar to my photo. Yoga Nidra is a good way to calm and refresh isnt it? I have only experienced it a few times through a book and perhaps at a workshop 20 years ago. Thank you for your web site.
