“Here I Come to Save the Day!” and Other Delusions of Grandeur
The spiritual journey is filled with amusing day trips. Have you ever felt like you have to make a choice between becoming enlightened and saving the world? What is that were a false choice and just another diversion presented by, to and for “mini-me” (the egoic self)? Many spiritual teachings tell us that there is no need to decide between those two extremes. What if we progress on our spiritual journey, we discover that the only way to save the world is by becoming enlightened? As we become more enlightened, even the noble goal of saving the world ceases to matter.
