Question: How can we recognize tricks and traps of our egos so that the spirit could start working?
You must hold on and submit to a guide, the way that a sick man, a dying man submits to a doctor. A dying man submits to the doctor, he’s putting his own understanding and logic and reasons aside, and he is only following the doctor’s order. The problem is, very few in this world look for spirituality to clean up their spirit. Majority look for spirituality because they think they are already high spiritually and they find a Sheykh or a guide to make them to go higher. Do you understand? Your spirit will only start working when you submit to that doctor and he starts to clean you up. This much is enough. Fatiha.
