Inexhaustable Wealth

As well as making friends with yourself, fundamentally one should be cynical and critical. This doesn’t mean that you should punish yourself, but you just attack the areas of ego’s indulgence. At the same time, you continue the friendship with yourself. Meditation plays an important part in this by letting things come to the surface. In this way, you have inexhaustible wealth to work with. Basic sanity and basic richness and basic openness become prominent parts of the path.
