Baba’s work: The problem of ego

In doing Baba’s work, there is one great difficulty. No doubt the workers have love for Baba, but, at the same time, they have their own characteristic weaknesses. The great difficulty resides in the expression of one’s ego, the feeling of self-importance by which a man is possessed, despite one’s best efforts to lose it. The heart is for weakening the ego, but the mind is for strengthening it. The mind gains a sense of greatness in doing Baba’s work. There is no escaping this.

What is to be done then? Try to be humble. But even if the leader of a group, charged with the responsibility of spreading Baba’s message of love far and wide, tries to be humble, his co-workers may take it as mere posing on his part and look down upon him. Although other people will ultimately respect him for his quality of leadership., p4275
