With ego, life is a misery because if you are rooted in some- thing false you cannot celebrate. Only truth can release the energies of celebration in you. Only truth can become a song in your heart.
The ego is the greatest lie: all other lies are by- products of it. And because it is a lie, it stinks; because it is a lie, it creates a thousand and one problems around itself. It hides behind those problems. It creates a great facade of misery.
