but do not let either affect the poise of the mind:" Buddha
What do you take from this quote?
For me this reflects the Pull of Ego and the need to stay centered.
Ego is a Powerful thing.
I see Ego like a being filled with a desire to be the Center
of the Universe..
When I look at the Universe I see it as if it is on a Web,
To want to be at that Center would be OK
If it is not caused by Ego.
Strangely enough this can be achieved even though many will
say "No! You have to Put yourself there." (Via Ego)
I have seen it fare better when I am just having fun..
Not focused on Me, Me, Me..
When I open my heart up and am elated with Joy
from the people around me and the Love I feel in Laughter,
People are Always wanting to be around me.
I don't believe it is because I am focused on me but
actually because I am "Not"..
When it is Negative and displeasing to you
while you are in Ego, it will cause you to lose your center Easily..
But when you are not in ego you will see,
that everything is just as Wonderful, Beautiful, Annoying
and Silly as You are
and that alone will keep you Centered.
"I see you!"
