DAILY ZEN #essentialsofrecovery

"Conceptual thought does not disappear as a result of meditative insight. Only the belief in the ego's solidity is lost. Yet, this insight does not come easily. It is far more tempting -- and easier -- to use meditation to withdraw from our confusion about ourselves, to dwell in the tranquil stabilization that meditation offers, and to think of this as approximating the teaching of egolessness. But this is not what the Buddha meant by Right View."

"Selflessness," Mark Epstein and HH Dalai Lama in Thoughts Without a Thinker  (pg.99)
