beliefs are like hookworms on the brain

147

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.
