Fear of Letting Go of the Ego
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai

(Originally in English)
Q: How do You deal with the fear of letting go of the self, of becoming selfless, egoless?
M: I don't remember how I dealt with it. It just naturally goes by getting in touch and merging yourself with God. You just naturally have no more self. Slowly, slowly the self will go out. That's it. I don't deal with it. To have to deal with it is a problematic thing. The self is very big; therefore, let God deal with it. After you practice this Method, you have less and less self, and then you become greater and greater. The less you become, the greater you are. This is a paradox of God. It is not for us to understand.
