Poached Eggs (all of us)
Arguing about transcending the I-concept, 'reducing' the 'power' of the ego, or what-not, is merely evidence of continued belief in the reality of that which, being merely a concept, is totally unreal.

It is like a man saying, 'I am perfectly sane: I know that I am not a poached egg, instead I am busily engaged in unpoaching myself and soon I shall not even need a piece of toast in order to be able to sit down.'

As long as there is a ‘YOU’ doing or not- doing,
Thinking or not-thinking,’meditating’ or ‘not-meditating’
‘YOU’ are no closer to home
Than the day ‘YOU’ were born.
