The Momentum of ‘Me’

“Recognising your real nature is the beginning, it’s not the end. It’s so often sold as a big bang, that’s it, all over, thank you very much. It’s the beginning because this ‘me’ mechanism is still there, still in operation. It’s like a heavy locomotive; even though you’ve put out the firebox it’s still charging down the track, it’s got momentum. But now you recognise it for what it is. Every time you come from that protective place, as soon as you see it you can disassemble right there, you can apologies, you can reveal the game that you’re playing and watch the ‘self’ die in its own humiliation. That’s the stuff many of us aren’t prepared to do, we just want some big fix. That’s the emptying out, that’s the letting go, that’s the unravelling, the realigning. If you find yourself still needing to protect then in truth you’re not putting out that firebox, you’re still throwing in the coal, still creating more steam.”
