' Disidentify with the ego '...

There seem to be two kinds of searchers:

those who seek to make their ego something other than it is, i.e. holy, happy, unselfish (as though you could make a fish unfish),

and those who understand that all such attempts are just gesticulation and play-acting,

that there is only one thing that can be done,

which is to disidentify themselves with the ego,

by realising its unreality, and by becoming aware of their eternal identity with pure being.
