Ego Builds a Wall

Book coverEgo keeps busy trying to build a wall around itself, to shut itself away from the “other.” Then, of course, having created this barrier, immediately the ego also wants to communicate with the other, which it now perceives as “outside” or not part of itself.

From “Nonviolence ” in Smile at Fear: Awakening the True Heart of Bravery, page 45.
