The Internal and External Ego

Today Gurudeva discusses the subtleties of the anava in its internal and external aspects. Gurudeva stresses that the first step of spiritual unfoldment is to harmonize these two so that they are one and the same. When this occurs one becomes a complete person, 24 hours a day, and nothing is hidden, even unto oneself. The best way to accomplish this, Gurudeva says, is through the Vasana Daha Tantra.

The mystic lives, and is taught to live, two-thirds within himself and only one-third in the external. In learning how to do this, the mystic is taught to become consciously conscious, or aware that he is aware.
