If the messenger is attached to the ego, then all the information gets dark and confusing...

What is the use of years of meditation if around me I see lots of practitioners who after years of dedicated meditation are still caught up in their restricted minds and therefore led by their anger sex addiction abusive urges etc.

Do not get fooled by what people call training. There are many people who brag about how many years of training they have done, yet actually training is not about the number of years. There seem to be even more people who do training and then their ego becomes stronger. Because they get stuck on the idea of having done so much training and then they feel experienced. That is why Vimalakirti taught: "Do not make fun of beginners." If our training truly ripens, then we become humble.
