So I teach you to be egoists so that you can become ego less. I teach you to be perfect egoists. Don't hide it, otherwise hypocrisy will be born. And don't struggle with the unripe phenomenon. Let it ripen and help it. Bring it to a peak.. Nothing unripe can be thrown-unripe fruit clings to the tree and the tree clings to the unripe fruit. And if you force it to separate a wound is left behind. And the scar will continue, The wound will always remain green, and you will always feel hurt. Remember, every thing has a time to grow, to be ripe, to fall down into the earth and dissolve. Your ego also has a time. It needs maturity... So to me, ego is part of natural growth. But that doesn't mean you have to remain with it forever. It is a natural growth, and then there is a second step when it has to be dropped. That too is natural. But the second step can be taken only when the first has come to its crescendo, its climax, when the first has reached its peak. So I teach both-I teach "ego ness" and I teach egolessnes. First be egoists, perfect egoists, absolute egoists, as if the whole existence exists for you and you are the centre; all the stars revolve round you and the sun rises for you; and everything exists for you, just to help you be here. Be the centres and don't be afraid because if you are afraid you will never be ripe. Accept it! It is a part of growth. And enjoy it and bring it to a peak. When it comes to a peak, suddenly you will become aware that you are not the centre. This has been a fallacy, this has been a childish attitude. But you were a child, so nothing is wrong in it. Now you have to become mature, and now you can see you are not the centre. Really, when you see that you are not the centre, you also see there is no centre in existence-or everywhere is the centre.
