It seems to define who we are and we feel threatened if the idea we have of ourselves is questioned. If the idea we have of ourselves become uncomfortable, we’d rather just exchange it for another than give it up.
We’d rather start playing a new role than stop playing roles all together. Rather than looking at what we really are, beyond the idea we have of ourself and others, we go on intoxicating ourselves with a dream.
This is our addiction. This is what causes all levels of misery. If you are a normal person you may just cause yourself som trouble. But if you have a powerful position you may cause pain for millions and millions of people. Much of what we see in the world today.
