Dear Folks -
This week in the Ordinary Life Talk I gave I tried to explore what it might mean to apply the phrases to ourselves that we are "the salt of the earth and the light of the world." It certainly does not mean that the ego should be inflated by this. The ego must decrease and the Self must increase. The main goal of spiritual work is not so that the ego can 'become something or someone." The main goal is what has to happen so that we can become a transforming influence in the world. The talk closes with the true story of a man playing a violin in a subway in Washington.
