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.'
