Freed from Fixations…

Our lack of self frees us from the compulsion to secure ourselves within the world. We do not need to become more real by becoming wealthy, or famous, or powerful, or beautiful. We are able to realize our nonduality with the world because we are freed from such fixations. – David Loy, “Healing Ecology.”

  1. Yes! Ego’s insatiable hunger to be more wealthy, more famous, more powerful, or more beautiful than others is a constant “striving for” without ever attaining . . . because the carrot stays just out of reach.

    When we tune Ego out, contentment arises from within.
