Today I was thinking of telling you about the ego problem, because I think everybody feels that that's the biggest problem they all have; and there's a big ego trip one gets into, and they don't know what to do with it. So first part I will tell you how the ego rises and how, what it does to us; the second how to understand it, how to tackle the position of ego and put it in its own aspect.
As you see in the map here, the yellow stuff that you see on top is the ego. The balloon that is yellow is the ego. You see down below it starts from the Swadisthana. This is the color of the bile within us, and this Swadisthana Chakra which is for our creativity is directly connected to that ego there. And when it starts rotating round the Void and going to the various parts of the Void, it collects all the problems of the Void. Void is that green circle within us where physically we have in the Void, we have uterus, we have kidney - it's a complete viscera: all the intestines, ascending, transverse, descending, colon, liver- is the upper part of liver more - then also pancreas and the spleen. So all the problems of these organs are collected by this chakra which moves. It comes out of the Nabhi Chakra and moves round and round and round, and collects all the problems. It nourishes, gives power, the vital power to these organs, and also it generates necessary power for our creative action. It also collects the fat cells of the Void, convert it into the proper cells for the brain, for its use, for the grey matter. All this work it has to do, one chakra.
