However, you do not lose your egoism when you do that. It remains, and you will not be able to remove it in any way. But you can rise above it in order to control it.
Question: Is there a movement of the point itself inside the ego?
Answer: Yes. The point in the heart is the foundation of our spiritual vessel, of our soul. But at the same time, it is like a drop of semen from which the embryo develops. Therefore, we must begin to develop it, and it will gradually rise above our ego.
The departure of this point from the ego is allegorically called the exodus from Egypt, the departure from the ruling of Pharaoh, from our egoism. This is the only way we can be free. If we continue to develop the point in the heart, it will grow, and we will begin to feel the spiritual world in it.
