But how are we going to do that? People say, you can't change human nature overnight, you're asking us to give up the Ego and that's the most difficult of all things to do. <br />Actually it isn't. Because the Ego doesn't exist, but of course if you try to give up your Ego wíth your Ego, then it'll take you til the end of time. Because this is the point you transform yourself, can't make yourself change, you can't make yourself sane, can't make yourself loving, you can't make yourself unselfish. And yet it's absolutely necessary that we do that way. It's absolutely necessary!'<br />- Alan Watts 1971 -
