Lose yourself

Just imagine how much more you could see if the view was not blocked by your own limited ego. Think of the depth of experience you could know if you could set your own concerns completely aside.

There have been moments when you’ve forgotten yourself. And in those moments you’ve caught glimpses of how powerful it can be to set your ego aside. Gently relax your obsession with being you, and more fully experience what truly is. Open your eyes all the way and see the immense abundance that is all around.

Concern yourself not with getting it or even with relating to it. Realize that you are already and always a part of it. Let yourself forget yourself for a while. See your ego as it melts away to reveal the stunning magnificence that lies beyond.

Lose yourself as completely as possible. And be amazed at the depth and richness of experience that there is to gain.

— Ralph Marston
