Little ‘me’ is our misery, but we want to blame it on something outside ourselves. Little ‘me’ is the cause of our loneliness, little ‘me’ is the cause of our heartbreaks and headaches, but we want to blame it on the ‘other’. My mother, my father, my brother, my sister, my husband, my wife–we blame everyone and then we blame ‘life’, but the truth is we are the author of our own strife.

Our life is a fiction that we create in our mind, and everyone’s fiction is a little different, and this creates friction because we want everyone to think just like us. Even though most people are insane, everyone does not think the same.

To remove the friction and discord from our life we need to ‘get out of our head’ and open our heart to the wisdom of the Wise. Only a human being grounded in divine wisdom is really sane, and such a human being is rare to be found. Most so-called ‘wise people’ have not really ‘wised-up’ and are still chasing after name and fame. The wounded and lame flock around them like pigeons at the park, but these ‘spiritual’ pigeons remain in the dark. The blind cannot lead the blind, and the power-hungry cannot feed the hungry.

We should hunger only for the power of humility, because with that power comes the grace God. Only the grace of God can take away our misery and pain. That grace is essential, and that grace is our own Essence. When that grace flows, every trace of selfishness is removed from our nature.

Misery is of our own making; it is not superimposed upon us by others. Misery is the superimposition of little ‘me’ on the mind. If we have little ‘me’ on our mind, our mind becomes heavy and we lose all peace. Don’t you think it’s time to wise-up and drop little ‘me’? We can let it go in the blink of an eye, but only if we connect the mind to the Supreme ‘I’.

Connecting the mind to the Real Self is the only way to be happy and free, otherwise, we will remain caught up in little ‘me.’
