Mantram-9. ( Knower of Brahmam becomes Brahmam. )
Discussion-10. "Ego is the needle that plies through the channels of thought........"
Ego is the needle that plies through the channels of thought, stitching on the mental stuff during the mind's earlier thought-reactions to its external world happenings.
If those lines are rightly made, today when the ego plays upon it, a perfect music of joyous peace can be had.
If the scratches were made due to negative and animal thought-currents, the pattern so made on the mental 'record' would be such that ego playing it can sing only sobs and agitations!
It is in this sense that the reactions of actions done in the past bind us in relentless enslavement.
