To counteract the egoism that can arise so strongly that one can feel very disturbed by it one could read the Lord’s Prayer, the Sermon on the Mount or the beginning of John’s Gospel and let them work in one. This will create quiet in us for awhile. What was given as the Fifth Gospel can also prevent a further increase in egotism.
