The Most Terrible Thing

Question: What is the most terrible thing you’ve dealt with in your life?

Answer: Undoubtedly it is myself, my own ego. We only have one true enemy, and it is our own egoistic and hateful nature.

This is what creates a subjective, distorted perception of reality, this is what forces us into ruthless, exclusive competition, success at the expense of others, this is what prevents us from building the crucial, positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing relationships with each other.

If we want to avoid terrible things, if we want to change anything around us, we have to start with our own nature.
