"Why does one create an image about oneself?
Because one has never studied what one is,
actually. We think we should be this or that, the
ideal, the hero for example. What awakens anger
is that our ideal, the idea we have of ourselves
is attacked. And the idea we have of ourselves
is an escape from the fact of what we are. But
when you are observing the actual fact of what
you are, no one can hurt you....to observe what
is, to see it, actually be familiar with it, there
must be no judgement, no evaluation, no
opinion, no fear."
