The master clearly states that when we see a defect in others it is because we carry that defect within our own hidden psychology. I have observed this happening, that I can find many faults with others, so many in fact that it is a form of torture thinking about it.
I am frustrated about not being able to transform any of it, because when sitting to meditate, my mind simply sharpens itself into a dangerous weapon in response to my efforts, thus meditation becomes unbearable, the resistance to spiritual practice is strong, obviously a part of me wants to work, otherwise I wouldn't be here, I would be elsewhere enjoying the lure of my passions, however, everytime I meditate on the ego I don't get anywhere due to many factors. Are there any clear simple approaches to meditation? If I see a defect in someone, does that not mean that they actually possess that defect? If it bothers me is it simply because I share a similar ego? Is it that simple?
