The main problem which a person faces with their spiritual journey is not in the outside world but the resistance within . The Ego is terrified of Spirit as it fears it would mean its death and when it realises it is seriously threatened it can react with incredible hate . The psyche can be sent into a spiral of fear and guilt as the Ego tries to defend itself against this threat to its existence .
Resistance may manifest itself as anxiety and depression or a serious illness . When faced with this onslaught by the Ego it is important to remain calm . Accept whatever is thrown at you – at times it may seem you are facing one disaster after another but remember you cannot be really hurt . The Ego’s energy is limited and it will eventually run out of steam even though this may take some time . Just keep going on and realise it is you who is in charge and one day you will awake to your larger Self .
