“Egolessness does not mean that nothing exists, as some have thought, a kind of nihilism. Instead, it means you can let go of your habitual patterns and when you let go, you truly let go. You do not re-create or rebuild another shell immediately afterward. Once you let go, you do not start all over again. Egolessness is having the trust to not rebuild again at all, and experiencing the psychological freshness that comes with not rebuilding. The truth of egolessness can only be experienced fully through meditation practice.”
