The Ego’s Hat Trick

“There is little doubt that Western infatuation with eastern spiritual disciplines, ostensibly designed to transcend or extinguish the illusion of the ‘Ego’, has reached an impasse. Instead of offereing an alternative way to transform Western consciousness, these disciplines have been converted into subtle devices for enhancing its insatiable desire for light, power and control.”

Robert Avens, ‘Imagination is Reality’ p4.
