The ego is a monkey catapulting through

The ego is a monkey catapulting through the jungle: Totally fascinated by the realm of the senses, it swings from one desire to the next, one conflict to the next, one self-centered idea to the next. If you threaten it, it actually fears for its life. Let this monkey go... Just remain in the center, watching. And then forget that you are there.

~ Hua Hu Ching
