One day at darshan I gathered the courage to ask Swamiji what I could do in everyday life that would help to see the world accurately. I started out by saying “there is a problem with self. . . .” He broke in, and spoke to me very strongly: “There is no problem with self! You are not this little self! Do not think that way! You are a cosmic being! You are as large as the universe! DO NOT THINK THAT WAY!” He went on for a long time, with many variations on the point.
