Shabd Mystic, back to fasting from the world for you ! The best way to convert others is to demonstrate the fruits of your own conversion, whatever they may be. Otherwise it starts to sound like a diatribe cursing people for not being more like you prescribe. I also get a bit uncomfortable when people start giving the poor old ego bad press, that really is just a way of dismissing a product of aeons of evolution as some kind of unfortunate accident, be assured it is literally of vital importance. If you are thinking, your ego is involved. It cannot be otherwise.
You may like to consult your library and read the Cloud Of Unknowing, which speaks of the inner seeker having to overcome the urge to preach about the quest, like an excited traveller unable to contain the impulse to report his tales of adventure.
