The Trouble with Ego

WHY ARE YOU WITH SUCH EGO?
ONE OF THESE DAYS YOU WILL
HAVE TO LEAVE THIS WORLD AND
BECOME ONE WITH THE EARTH.

~ NEEM KAROLI BABA (MAHARAJJI)

You Came In With An Expiry Date
The compassionate Master says
Did You Think You Can Defeat Fate
Even As You Forget Nature’s Ways

Dear One, all things born must die
From the elements, you were made
What is this drive of I, me, and my
That plays in dark and shade

When fate comes calling
When it is time to return
There is no point bawling
That there was no time to learn

To the elements, you will go back
Merging back with the earth
There is just no track
To stay on in this birth

From nakedness, you began
In nakedness, you end
Short is your life span
Precious time to wisely spend

Following ego’s path
Nothing flows with ease
Its judgments, greed, and wrath
Only results in loss of peace

The ego masks your Truth
Dear One, know this and awake
Stop giving into untruth
From ego, power you must take

In total clarity, you must know
Ego is Edging God Out
This ego you must let go
To find the Truth beyond doubt

Behind ego’s screen
Is the light of the Supreme
From ego’s grip, you must wean
To break free from ego’s dream

So wake up dear One
And know that ego is an illusion
The battle with the ego will be won
When you stop feeding the delusion

Love
Sundar
