The ego develops distance between us more and more. Everything that we develop turns against us. It is human nature to feel only oneself, to take what is good, to flee from what is bad. The ego leads us to more and more separation from everything that is not “me,” from all of the reality around me. Simultaneously, within the nature that surrounds us, everything is connected in a wonderful harmony. And only we are against nature. It is up to us to replace the power of the ego with the power of connection, approach and giving. This can sound weird at first, but this is the development toward which nature is pushing us.
