EGOLESSNESS IS LETTING GO

“Egolessness” does not mean that nothing exists, as some have
thought, a kind of nihilism. Instead, it means that you can let go of
your habitual patterns and then when you let do, you genuinely let
go. You do not re-create or rebuild another shell immediately
afterward. Once you let go, you do not just start all over again.
Egolessness is having the trust to not rebuild again at all and
experiencing the psychological healthiness and freshness that goes
with not rebuilding. The truth of egolessness can only be experienced
fully through meditation practice.

From “The Meeting of Buddhist and Western Psychology,” in THE SANITY
WE ARE BORN WITH: A BUDDHIST APPROACH TO PSYCHOLOGY, page 10.
