Seeking for love, attention, support, agreement, companionship, interactions, success, authority, name and fame from the world of names and forms, are the plays of the ego.
All these desires derived from egoism, to get rid of the feelings of emptiness, meaninglessness, deficiency, loneliness and dissatisfaction.
Get rid of the ego, be free from egoism, realize selflessness, and all these defilements will disappear.
The one and only ‘problem’ that we ‘have’ if we think we have problems in this life existence, is the ego.
Once the ego is eliminated, we perform actions without being influenced by craving and aversion, selfish intentions, desires and expectation of wants and don’t wants, nor being determined by the result of actions.
