So I've been spending some time considering the writing of Eckhart Tolle in A New Earth...my second time to work my way through this book. It's been interesting to observe my ego when reading (or in my case, listening) about the illusion your ego creates in order to protect itself at all costs! Got a little grumpy, that little ego of mine!
So I took it to the mat to work it out.
"If you can recognize illusion as illusion it dissolves. Its recognition is its ending. In the seeing of who you are not, the reality of who you are emerges by itself."
Every exhale serves as an opportunity to release, to shed all that you are not. What emerges is the beautiful essence of the true you.
