PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK WITH THE EGO

Awareness is the Function:
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor.

Unconsciousness is the role:
Look at me playing Hamlet at the Old Vic.
Look at me playing cook in the old Kitchen.

While awareness is continuous,
the Ego doesn’t get a chance to play its roles.

Consciousness alternates with unconsciousness.
The Ego and its roles come and go continuously.
Even when someone is agreeable to you,
it can be the Ego playing its role.
Pleasant to be on the receiving end of agreeability
so one accepts it willingly.
The agreeable Ego
gets an agreeable meal.

(Try being disagreeable in return
and see what response that elicits!)
