Inner silence, so now the true path and practice begins. All that is needed. The true, quiet self zone and it is wondrous and inviting. The only state for inner peace and alignment to what's beyond the form.
Why am I still examining the ego when I thought everything had been put on the surrender pile? At this point, it is clear there is not going to be peace if it doesn't go, so is this the deepest part of the ego's survival zone? Training it to sit on the couch with folded hands worked for awhile, making friends with it disarmed it for a bit, so now to embrace it with compassion as I would a dying friend or family member or just take a bigger stick and put it out of it's misery?
