On Ego 


"Well," you ask.

"How do I get rid of it?"


And my answer to that is:
That's the wrong question.


How does one get rid of what?


You can't get rid of your hallucination of being an ego by an activity of the ego.


Sorry, but it can't be done . . .


If you try to get rid of your ego with your ego you will just end up in a vicious circle.


You'd be like somebody who worries because they worry because they worry.
