A small extract from this little powerful book.
Complaining and reactivity are favourite mind patterns through which the ego strengthens itself. For many people, a large part of their mental-emotional activity consists of complaining and reacting against this or that. By doing this, you make others or a situation “wrong” and yourself “right.” Through being “right,” you feel superior and through feeling superior, you strength your sense of self. In reality, of course, you are only strengthening the illusion of the ego.
Eckhart’s words resonates a simplicity which is our true essence, from which we can sometimes become unconnected. This book helps to guide us back onto the path.
