The ego is always seeking addition. It must always be on the hunt for something to be added with hopes of tasting artificial contentment in the never-ending spiral of discontentment. As the twelve steppers say, it just needs more and more of what’s not working.
The True Self is always content and loves the art of subtraction. It needs nothing to be added. It knows that more and more of less and less is the narrow path to The Well that never runs dry.
Put this in your pocket…In the formless realm, you’d rather surrender and let go than hunt and gather.
