The ego, craving and aversion, and attachments...


To be free from unhappiness or suffering that derives from egoism that generates craving and aversion towards names and forms that it likes and dislikes, agrees and disagrees with, and thus being disturbed and influenced by impurities that arise due to reactions of the ego towards names and forms that it likes and dislikes, agrees and disagrees with, such like having anger, hatred, jealousy, greed, dissatisfaction, disappointment, pride, arrogance, agitation, depression, hurts, fear and worry, is nothing to do with the qualities of the body and mind that make us think that is who we are, or what we do or don't do, can do and cannot do, or how many books we have read, how much knowledge we have accumulated, or whether we think we are good and happy or not, or whether life is in good condition or not, or whether we think we are practicing 'yoga and meditation', and being a 'vegetarian' or not, and etc...

Even when we think we are 'good and happy' people, it still doesn't guarantee that we will be free from unhappiness or suffering that arise whenever the mind comes in contact of the objects of the senses that it doesn't like and disagrees with, that it doesn't want, and when the mind doesn't come in contact with the objects of the senses that it likes and agrees with, that it wants.

It's about letting go of the ego, craving and aversion, and the attachment towards all the names and forms that our mind sees, hears, smells, tastes, touches and thinks, that will free us from impurities being generated in the mind due to reactions towards the objects of the senses that it likes and dislikes, agrees and disagrees with.

Om shanti.
