BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, June 26th, 2017 by Deepak Chopra in THE WAY OF THE WIZARD

“Ego is “I”; it is your singular point of view. In innocence this point of view is pure, like a clear lens. But without innocence the ego’s focus is extremely distorting. If you think you know something—including yourself—you are actually seeing your own judgments and labels. The simplest words we use to describe each other—such as friend, family, stranger—are loaded with judgments. The enormous gulf in meaning between friend and stranger, for example, is filled with interpretations. A friend is treated one way, an enemy another. Even if we do not bring these judgments to the surface, they cloud our vision like dust obscuring a lens.”

Deepak Chopra, in “The Way of the Wizard”
