The Ego And The Self


Like two golden birds perched on a tree.
United companions are the ego and the Self.
One eats the sweet and sour fruits of the tree
While the other looks on without eating.

Thinking we are the ego,
We feel attached and fall into sorrow.
But realize that you are the Self,
and you will be freed from sorrow.
When you realize that you are the Self,
Supreme source of light and love,
You transcend good and evil
And move into a state of union.

From the Bhagavad Gita
