= Superficial Individualisation - Ego =
And yet our individualisation is only a superficial formation. Behind it there is a consciousness, a Purusha, who is not determined or limited by his individualisation. One’s individualisation exists not just by virtue of the world-being, but also by virtue of a consciousness which uses the world-being for experience of its possibilities of individuality. These two powers, Purusha and his world-material, are both necessary for one’s present experience of individuality.
When one has passed beyond individualising, then one shall be a real Person. Ego was the helper; Ego is the bar. To begin with, a tremendous labour is required to individualise oneself, and afterwards one must demolish all that has been done in order to progress.
The more conscious and individualised one becomes, the more one begins to think that one is here not without reason or without purpose. One realises suddenly that one is here because there is something to be done and this something is not anything egoistic. Once one knows a little, one can find their own method, if one has the genius for it! But first one must stand on one's own feet and know how to walk. Therefore, one needs education. An individualised mind is extremely rare, and comes only after a long education.
