  • "Arguing about transcending the I-concept,'reducing' the 'power' of the ego or what-not, is merely evidence of continued belief in the reality of that which, being a concept, is totally unreal.

    It's like a man saying, 'I am perfectly sane: I know that I am not a poached egg, indeed I am busily engaged in unpoaching myself and soon I will not even need a piece of toast in order to sit down.'"
