Reader of the questions: different unidentified Indian or Nepali men, among them is Haridas and Arun ?
Question 1
Beloved master, what are you doing and why? How is it different from what we are doing and why?
Question 2
Beloved master, can a journey motivated by desire end in desireless witnessing?
Question 3
Beloved master, I am a little confused. Is there a contradiction between living life totally, and at the same time witnessing it from outside?
Question 4
Beloved master, for a long time I thought that I wanted to drop my ego, but I've found that I just want to drop the pain that comes with having an ego, and I still want to keep that pleasure or romance and excitement of having an ego. So it seems that my only motivation for dropping is a kind of negative one, to avoid the pain. I'm wondering if there is any possible positive motivation that could mean beyond ego?
