The Core Ego Move

Clouds

 

Because a key aspect of the nature of Reality is the impermanence of what is manifest on this plane, the move of the Ego, in defense against the amazing immensity and horror of this impermanence, is to create, foster, and identify with a delusion of permanence.
 
The practice, then, is first to notice the operation of the ego, scrambling to create permanence where there is none. In doing so, we move the ego from subject to object, and loosen our identification with our ego.
