Beliefs are like hookworms on the brain. Firmly and deeply embedded into the bio-computer, they both feed on it and distort its functioning.
The most pervasive and destructive hookworm is the ‘me’ concept – it’s the motherworm and fatherworm in one fat wriggler.
To attempt to extricate it is to assist its replication. It grows new heads and tails; mutates with amazing skill.
Waking up to the workings of thought is the only remedy. When it’s seen that what one took oneself to be as an independent self-existent ‘person’ is a bundle of thoughts wearing a different barcode every time you turn around, everything changes.
It’s a seeing that’s fatal to all brainworms.
