If God has been absent from your life these past 37 and a half years, you might consider asking Him to guide you.

The reduction of ego is the cardinal business between you and God. What is left is not a void but rather love. Ego cannot merge with love. One always has to shove the other out. The more you cling to ego, the less you can love.

B.O.

PS - When I say "ego," I am referring not to ego-TISM, which implies selfish injuriousness, but to ego-ISM, which refers more broadly to the sublimation of the ego above all else. You can be egoistic without being egotistic, though egoism still precludes love.
