Learning
Throwing your ego into the sea and watching it drown in the vastness of what
you don’t know.

Knowledge

Admitting you have the ego to drown and that the sea of vastness is there

Wisdom

Showing someone else how to do it.

-W.E.

Humility is what will commence the journey.
It will set you on fire in your love of learning, knowledge and wisdom.
A great scholar said, ‘The more I learned, the more ignorant I became’. Think about the context of this magnificent quote. Think about who said it and it’s weight.
He wasn’t ignorant by any means but this is an expression of humility and defeat. Admittance he’s a speck of nothing despite of who the public thought he was, in the vast ocean of knowledge that existed and opened up to him the more he learned.

A Kingly Find

The King ran out of the cave in ecstasy, screaming with hands in the air. The people thought he had lost his mind. It had been forty days since he entered the cave as a last resort, burdened with the guilt of not being able to use his riches to save his ailing wife.

“What is it King? What did you find?” the people asked as they had been standing anxiously for forty days.
Panting and still elated he blurted out, “I found it!”
“Found what,” the people asked again.
“Forgiveness!”
“Teach us, King”.
With a sigh of relief the king said,

“All you have to do is ask.”

Egoïste – 29

Rabia

There comes a point where loving someone goes beyond selfish needs but is so entwined in it that all becomes one and the same.

She had no other desire than to be burnt in His fire because everyone was after Him for themselves, she didn’t want Him for herself, she wanted Him for His sake alone.

Her self, had become effaced a long time ago, so she only saw Him.

That kind of a woman, I am utterly jealous of!

Those who know her name all are!

-W.E.

Egoïste – 28

He wants us to come to Him whole, but the only way to come whole is to strip away layers of our being until naked.

Naked souls with no garments of vices.

The ability to recognise your garments will determine how easily you can remove them.

That is the Egoïste’s aim, they want Him all to themselves.

-W.E.
