The primary barrier to inner harmony is believing in fantasies. Specifically, the fantasy of the ego story being real.
If You can perceive it, it can’t be You. Two things: You (whatever that is) and a second, separate thing that You are experiencing.
Two things: You and not-You.
You are not a human. You are not a man. You are not rich. You are not a former real estate developer. You are not a leader. You are not the president of a country. Those are roles, jobs, and ideas. They help us communicate and understand each other, but they are not who You are.
You are not being personally attacked when someone lobs an insult or a threat. Insults and threats are just noise. Noise targeting those who identify with their egos.
If You believe the fantasy that You are Your roles—and You control one of the world’s foremost nuclear arsenals—then insults and threats may motivate You to do something that everyone will pay for. Possibly for generations to come.
Your ego is a fantasy identity. Your roles are not You. Don’t take them personally. Because when You do, You will be unhappy… maybe even unhappy enough to do something “tremendously and very” stupid.
