The Violent self   

December, 1997

  • The source of violence is the 'me', the ego, the self, which expresses itself in so many ways -- division, in trying to be or become somebody -- which divides itself as the 'me' and the 'not me', as the unconscious and the conscious, the 'me' that identifies with the family or not with the family, with the community or not with the community...
  • Every form of escape, distraction, movement away, sustains violence. If one realizes this, then the mind is confronted with 'what is' and nothing else.
