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?

Question: Definitively, Master, one who does not meditate cannot dissolve the ego?

Samael Aun Weor: No, he cannot, because he cannot comprehend it. How could someone dissolve the ego if there is no comprehension of it? First of all, it is necessary to acquire cognizance of the ego on which one meditates so that one can soon dissolve it.

Question: Since this is a fact, do you think the Gnostic student should meditate daily?

Samael Aun Weor: Gnostics should practice Meditation at least four or six hours daily, practicing in the morning, in the afternoon, and almost all night, until dawn. This should become our habit during our entire life. Thus, if they proceed that way, they will live a profound life and will Self-realize themselves. Otherwise, they will live a superficial, hollow life, a chronicle life, something—we would say—like a shallow puddle. We know very well that any puddle at the edge of a road is soon dried under the rays of the sun, and thereafter only rottenness is left. Nevertheless, the lakes are very different; they are profound, full of fish and life. We must, therefore, learn how to live profoundly, and this is obtained by means of Meditation. - Profound Meditation
