Egoless

“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.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa

“The seven branches of practice serve as antidotes: prostration is the antidote to pride; offering is the antidote to meanness, poverty, greed, and attachment; confession is the antidote to anger; rejoicing is the antidote to envy and jealousy; requesting the turning of the Wheel of Dharma is the antidote to ignorance; requesting the buddhas to remain is the antidote to wrong views; and dedication is the antidote to uncertainty.”

~ Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
