I’m being shown a very dark room, it seems almost like a cell, and up in one corner there’s just a small window with a chink of light, golden light, streaming through.
And I feel this self-imposed darkness I’ve brought upon myself and I’ve a knowledge of the light, and I’ve kept myself here, and I know, I just know that if only I let go I can just go outside and be in this wonderful golden light.
But pride, a fear of being proven wrong, an awareness that I might be made a fool of, stop me, but really I know I should just let go and open the door.
This foolish feeling is meaningless, but so hard to shake off.
But as I grow in spiritual knowledge I see the stupidity of holding myself back, and I feel I can let go and see ego for what it really is, truly a disharmony in my spiritual development.
The human side of me tries to hang on, but my spiritual powers will inevitably defeat and win, and allow me to pass into true enlightenment.
I can look back and see the follies of my ways and they seem so irrelevant and unimportant from where I see them now.
Indeed the ego is a prison and to realise this will allow you to let go and advance.
