It is necessary to comprehend that all human beings have an “I” that wants to stand out, wants to make itself felt, to climb to the top of the ladder, etc.; this is precisely the human being’s weakness. You also have that weak side. Do not fall into the same errors of others. Never say “I.” Always say “we.” Whoever masters himself can also master others.

Intelligently insinuate what you want, but do not say, “I want.” Remember that others are not interested in what you want. Let others prepare your idea as if it was theirs. Provide the elements for that preparation; provide them very intelligently. Let others elaborate your ideas. People like to feel important; that is the weakness of the “I.” Exploit that weakness. Never feel important and you will be important. Try to dissolve the “I” and you will be truly happy.

All success in life depends on the ability you have to deal with other persons. It is necessary to abandon egotism and to develop Christ-centrism. It is urgent to work for the common good. It is indispensable to dissolve the “I” and always think in terms of “we.” The term “we” always has more power than the egotistical “I.”

All the great failures of life are due to the “I.” When the “I” wants to make itself felt, stand out, climb to the top of the ladder, then the reactions of others follow and the result of such mental reactions is failure. Remember that the “I” is energetic. The “I” is desire. The “I” is memory. The “I” is fear, violence, hatred, wants, fanaticisms, jealousies, distrust, etc. You need to profoundly explore all the depths of your mind, because you have within you that which is called “I, myself,” the ego, etc.

If you want to succeed in life, you should dissolve the “I.” If you want to dissolve the “I,” you should disintegrate all your defects. If you want to disintegrate your defects, do not condemn or justify them; comprehend them. When we condemn a defect, we hide it in the profound recesses of the mind. When we justify a defect, we strengthen it horribly. But when we comprehend a certain defect, we disintegrate it completely.

“When you are with everyone but me,
you're with no one.
When you are with no one but me, you're with everyone.
Instead of being so bound up with everyone, be everyone. When you
become that many, you're nothing. Empty.”

Brother stand the pain.
Escape the poison of your impulses.
The sky [Ha-Shamayim] will bow to your beauty [Tiphereth, the soul], if you do.
Learn to light the candle [through transmutation]. Rise with the sun [and meditate in the morning hours].
Turn away from the cave of your [psychological sleeping].
That way a thorn expands to a rose.
A particular [soul] grows with the universal [the Army of the Voice, the Elohim].

What is it to praise [Allah, the Army of the Verb]?
Make yourself particles [in the Absolute].

What is it to know something of God?
Burn inside that presence [through alchemy]. Burn up.

Copper [the metal of Venus, love] melts in the healing elixir [in sacred sexual copulation].
So melt your [inferior, egotistical] self in the mixture
that sustains existence [the Tree of Life].
You tighten your two hands together,
determined not to give up saying "I" or "we."
This [mental exertion and] tightening [in the mind] blocks you [by creating in your mind the heresy of separateness].
-Jalāl al-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami
