"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than
for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God"
The Gospel of Mark 10:24
In order to bring about a spiritual mode of existence, we humans must purposely deal with our own egocentricity and its effects on our perceptions and actions. By confronting this beast within we can trigger actual transformations of consciousness which allow for inner contact with the Almighty. Be warned though, this kind of radical self-confrontation does not come easy, particularly for egos puffed up with pride about possessions. Awe of one's own money, status, fame or beauty keeps the focus on the outer when all along it should be on the inner.
