A Hard Crust

"You are nothing but consciousness, everything that tells you more than that is like a built-up crust of hard-packed emotional energy that has formed around you like a shell. All true growth and development is first and foremost a process of chopping away this crust."
- Spiritual Warfare page 100

Yes, yes, f***ing hell.
And the reason it takes so much work and time is because it is so incredibly hard-packed and many-layered.
It continues:

"Ego sends us searching in the direction of learning, of becoming more and adding on to ourselves, but everything we claim to seek lies in the opposite direction; of unlearning, of letting go, of reducing."
