I have read the master state that before eliminating an ego, it should be comprehended in all levels of the mind. However, in my practise I eliminate them as they arise in meditation and reflection; I will perceive an ego, comprehend what it is, what it relates to, how it manifests, how it feels, and then ask for its disintegration. Often times, afterwards I will perceive it in a new way in another layer of my mind, comprehend this, and then ask for its elimination. I continue this often four or 5 times seeing it in different ways. I can usually tell whether the Mother has disintegrated it or if I need to understand something more. Is this a right way to approach the elimination?
I find it to be necessary especially for lust, which I cannot comprehend in full but can take little pieces of it and comprehend them. However, perhaps what the master wishes us to look for is the deeper causes of all these pieces and to comprehend those. I imagine he would spend hours concentrated on a single defect until understanding it completely, and then move to elimination in the sahaja maithuna, although my capacities and circumstances limit me in this regard. However, is this the sort of practise we should strive to, or is the way I approach it fine and effective?
