Ego

Egolessness does not mean to annihilate or to give up our own individual practice. True egolessness should forget egolessness too. So as long as you understand your practice as egolessness, then it means you stick to ego practice too. So, when you practice your own practice with others, true egolessness happens. That egolessness is not just, you know, egolessness, it is also maybe ego practice. And at the same time it is practice of egolessness. So this egolessness is beyond ego or egolessness [laughs].
