The death of self, the death of me and mine, the death of the watcher.

“The attainment of enlightenment from ego’s point of view is extreme death, the death of self, the death of me and mine, the death of the watcher. It is the ultimate and final disappointment. Treading the spiritual path is painful. It is a constant unmasking, peeling off of layer after layer of masks. It involves insult after insult.”

~ Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, “The Myth of Freedom and the Way of Meditation”
