That's lovely Claudsy, both the image and the poem. "Dismissing ego's demands." That's a tough one for me still; although my partner Robert's been teaching me the Zen Way and recognising ego for the past 9 years.
Thanks, Veronica. I know the feeling. Ego is well entrenched and hard to root out. I'm still coming to grips with the little bugger myself, so I understand completely. One must make the effort, though, if one expects to grow in spirit.Good to hear from you.
