YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP XXXIII
|| VERSE 24+25+26+39 | CONSIDERATION OF EGOISM ||
One unacquainted with the true sense of Ego is blind amidst the luminous sphere of Consciousness , but one that knows its true meaning finds oneself amidst the sphere of Spiritual Light and loses oneself in the Divine Light .
One that understands the Divine Ego , does no more retain the notion of one's own egoism ; but mixes with the Supreme Soul , as a drop of water is lost in the waters of the ocean .
In reality there exists no " I " or " you " nor the visible world nor anything else ; but all these blend upon right reasoning in the One Ego , which remains and subsists after all other existences .
It is for want of the knowledge of the One Ego , that we think ourselves as " I " , " you " , " this " or the other ; and it is by shutting out our view of the Only Soul , that we see the incessant revolutions of this world and that .
