I hear this a lot and I, too, was a part of this group. When you hang around spiritual Masters, your whole life changes. It does not matter what you think or want, it’s what they want you to do. The “I” gets destroyed as the “Butcher” starts working on you. That is what happens when one joins the armed forces. You lose your independence and only follow orders. Our egos do not like to obey and accept what others want us to do. This is necessary when on the spiritual path. As you slowly disappear, the real you takes over. The mind is getting a demotion so it will fight to stay in power. So, listen to others and, with a well balanced mind, make the correct decision which will the best for everyone. Now, everyone, read this thought! Just kidding. — Satish Daryanani
