I think there is the real you, beyond ego.
Hidden behind the illusion of self is an illuminous part of your being that is your true self.
At this level, which is beyond the ego, blissfulness doesn’t waver and happiness doesn’t subside. Since the deepest desire of every human being is to find lasting levels of fulfillment, it should be everyone’s primary objective to start living from this place.
