Let the ego hits burn you

“Let the ego hits burn you. Stop shooting your sense of self up with Novocaine. Take the hit, calmly. Then take the next one. Take every single hit to ego that comes your way, doing nothing that you ordinarily would or that your thoughts would insist you do in order to soften the blow or lessen the pain in any way. Little by little this is the surest way to quickly and efficiently allow what is false, and what is inaccurately holding you to your faulty identity – break away to the point where eventually major chunks of dreck will be able to be sloughed off. But those major chunks must begin by first not resisting, ever, the thousand daily blows.”  – From Just Perception

Natalie at Finding the Buddha has some commentary on the above quote.
