Personal import…

Personal importance, or taking things personally, is the maximum expression of selfishness because we make the assumption that everything is about “me.”
-Don Miguel Ruiz

Death to the ego is the path to awakening.

  1. Hmmm..it took a few times reading this quote to get what I really wanted to say in response. “Death to the Ego is the path to awakening” perhaps. But, without the ego we have no identity of self. There is no individuality. No individual creativity, no individual thought. However, the death of the ego can lead to unified thought and purpose. The ego can be good or bad depending on how much a person allows their ego to rule their lives. Duality is the nature of life, as is the duality of the ego.
