The spiritual ego is not something different from the ordinary ego. Somebody feels his ego because he has money, somebody feels his ego strengthened because he has political power.

Somebody feels ego because he has great respectability. But the ego is the same. Somebody feels that he is spiritual — he’s a great saint, holier than you — that is also the same ego. You can call it “spiritual ego” but spiritual ego is a contradiction in terms.


The belief that society exists has sabotaged every effort to change mankind. It is the reason why revolutions have failed. It is about a totally different revolution: the revolution in the heart of the individual.
