Ego is a huge barrier for spiritual practice. How does Master fix our ego from both inside and outside? Supreme Master Qing Hai points out: when you follow the Master, you don’t have to believe anything about the Master ; just practice according to this method diligently and the outcome will surely be good. However, Master will not ignore your personalities. You should also adjust your bearings during the practice because it’s too slow to wait for the inner bearings to come out naturally. Some people are born to be slow. Our ego is rather big, so Master need to take care. Our group must be clean and upright, so other people will respect and trust us. It is not only the physical master who takes care of you ; the manifested master does it too. He will use the appropriate method according to our situation. So we just need to leave it to the Master; whatever he does, it is good for us, because we are at that level and need such treatment.
The ego is not easy to eliminate; it’s even harder if we work for Master or the public. The greater the ego is, the more harmful it will be for you. So Master pulls the brake once it reaches certain extent . For example, if somebody doesn’t like something, Master will surely give him that thing when he comes here, and keep giving him that until he breaks the constraint of liking or disliking. So when you have practiced with Master for a very long time, you will know that whatever Master does is truly for you. Whatever you think of me, it’s not my character, personality, or any specially-kept secret remedy that makes me do this. Master does not mind the “face”. One day when you see through Master’s outward action to realize the action behind the screen, and regard it with no judgment or discrimination, then you can be liberated, liberated from your own preconceived opinions.
