Oh my: that troublesome old ego!

Here's a wonderful paragraph from the forward to Be the Change: How Meditation Can Transform You and the World by Ed and Deb Shapiro.

I think I am the most important being in the world, but nobody else thinks it is about me, time doesn't think it is about me, space doesn't think it is about me, the planet doesn't think it is about me. It doesn't take much to get the message that it is actually not about me! But if somebody comes and steps on my toe or wants to take away my strawberries, then suddenly it is all about me again!

- Robert Thurman

There's a nice little article about this book over on The Huffington Post that features Law & Order actor, Linus Roache.
