Back from the Spiraling Downward into the Ego and the Vow

How did it start? Perhaps it started when I started to go the ego’s way in small things. Perhaps, when I did not deliberately focus on God but focused on the ego instead. It is so subtle. You try to make yourself believe that you can both focus on the desire of...
