“Ego always takes to something wrong.”

Still we are living in a relative world if you understand. We do not what is right and wrong is. Shri Krishna has said that there are three types of people in this world which create problems. The first type is the type which always takes to something wrong, destructive, and run after it and destroys oneself, emotional things. He gets emotional attachments to wrong things, he doesn’t value his life much relatively, and he destroys himself. Then the second type of people who are which he calls as the rajasikas who are futuristic, the first are the ones who live in the past, are the rajasikas, are the people who are futuristic, as we are in the West, very much futuristic. We are planning all the time what we are going to do next moment, but this moment, when we are here, we are not there. They are not capable of knowing what is right and wrong. Sometimes they may do right but mostly they go towards wrong because they do not know what is right and what is wrong.

The reason why we go towards wrong much more is this: that we have come from carbon, say earlier, from matter. Matter always fights the spirit. Say for example, we get used to anything that is material, a chair, we cannot sit on the ground. If you are used to a bed we cannot sleep on the ground. So the matter is always trying to give us habits. It is trying to overpower us, and that’s how we start getting into a comfortable understanding that we have to be dominated by matter. So such people who are on the rajasic side, we call them the rightsided people, are guided by the ego that developed because they convert matter into some form and they think they achieved a lot. As I said, a tree dies and they create a chair and that chair sits on your head and you think you have achieved a lot. So this is what happens that the ego, as you see on the right hand side, starts developing and when it develops it guides you. It can misguide you many a times, because when there is ego pampering we feel happy and when there is no ego pampering we feel unhappy. …

So the concept of the goodness is not there. Benevolence is not there, but the concept of something standing out, something out of the blue, they want to show off that they are something greater. ..

The third type of people are the seekers, the sattva gunis. They try to avoid extremes, they try to keep in the center, they are the ones who are best seekers. ..
