We are voracious. By continually misappropriating thoughts and actions as ours, we grow to monstrous egoic proportions. Just look closely for a moment and you will quickly discover that only the tiniest fraction of what you do and think you are, really comes from you. Most of our life belongs to nobody and automatically unfolds without a name, without our slightest participation. If further unchecked, this misappropriation will be our collective demise.
When you discover the extent of your true absence, you realize that no ‘you’ was ever there in the first place. That is the essence of peace that allows us to see both life and death as beautiful. When we can feel and act without making any of it ours, we save the world.
