THE GRAND ILLUSION
IS THAT YOU THINK
YOU KNOW YOURSELF
INSIDE OUT.
BUT APPLY THIS
SIMPLE TEST:
ASK OTHERS WHAT
THEY THINK OF YOU.
YOU WILL GET
THE SHOCK OF YOUR LIFE,
FOR THEY WILL DESCRIBE
SOMEONE WHO IS
A TOTAL STRANGER TO YOU.
THEY WILL PAINT AN IMAGE
OF YOU THAT DOESN’T JIVE
WITH YOUR OWN IMAGE
OF YOURSELF.
THEN YOU START CURSING
AND RESENTING OTHER PEOPLE.
BUT DON’T TURN INTO
A MISOGAMIST.
DON’T DESPAIR,
FOR YOU HAVE JUST
SHATTERED YOUR
GRAND ILLUSION,
YOUR FALSE IMAGE
OF YOURSELF.
NOW YOU ARE FULLY ENLIGHTENED.
NOW YOU ARE YOURSELF.
