Question: People who come to a group not only possess different potentials, but they also have problems with a different type of desire: Someone is still not finished with his work on desires of a physical nature and for someone else the most essential task is a struggle, for example, with his lust for power.
Answer: Nobody is struggling with anything. For a person who is learning the integral method there is no struggle with himself, with eating himself up, with self-flagellation, and even with self-examination. There is nothing in him to clarify, for this is absolute ego. It’s preferable to not open this “can of worms” and not examine it.
The only thing that is required is to go out of yourself into all the others, to create the center of the group so that it will exist by itself without dependence on others. I call this a “raspberry ball” that begins to shine among everyone as a result of our altruistic drives.
