The Sixties Radical- Azriel Egocentric

He does not appear greedy, nor haughty, but an egotist nonetheless. If there are opinions in the world other than his, then people are disregarding him. If something occurs not to his liking, it is a conspiracy against him. Whatever G‑d does in His world is either his reward or his punishment. All things are given meaning only as they relate to his self. He does not know of a world without him.

So we tell him: The first step in moving forward is to leave yourself behind.

Maamar Heichaltzu 5659; Hayom Yom, 10 Tevet; Torat Menachem, vol. 11, p. 68.
