Becoming an un-fish

"There seem to two kinds of searchers: those who seek to make their ego something other than it is, i.e. holy, happy, unselfish (as though you could make a fish unfish), and those who understand that all such attempts are just gesticulation and play-acting, that there is only one thing that can be done, which is to disidentify themselves with the ego, by realising its unreality, and by becoming aware of their eternal identity with pure being."
- Wei Wu Wei

This author seems really interesting, and I've just ordered one of his books. I went for All Else Is Bondage: Non-Volitional Living, because going with the flow is something which really hits home with me right at this moment.
