I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.”
....... is about undoing the ego...it's like.......I can't get there being an ego.....it has to be undone... gently.
