Today's Quote:

Your ego makes a wrong projection on an object and your attachment follows without hesitation and gets completely stuck on, or tied to that object. This splits and severely agitates your mind.

Lama Yeshe

The Ego’s Misguided Projection: A Tangled Web

When Perception Goes Astray

Our ego—the ever-watchful sentinel of self—constantly scans the world, interpreting experiences through its unique lens. But what happens when this lens becomes distorted? When the ego projects its own fears, desires, and biases onto external objects, it sets the stage for a tangled web of attachment.

The Ego’s Leap:

Imagine the ego as a painter, hastily sketching impressions onto the canvas of reality. It sees an object—an event, a person, an idea—and immediately assigns meaning. “This is good.” “This is bad.” “This defines me.” The ego’s judgments echo through our psyche.

Attachment: The Invisible Thread:

Once the ego labels an object, attachment follows. It’s as if an invisible thread binds us to that object. We cling to success, relationships, possessions, or even our self-image. The more we invest emotionally, the tighter the knot becomes.

The Split Mind:

Here lies the crux: the ego’s projection splits our mind. One part clings, while the other resists. “I must have this.” “I cannot lose that.” The battle rages within, tearing at our peace.

Agitation Unleashed:

The mind, now divided, churns like a stormy sea. Anxiety, fear, and desire collide. “What if I fail?” “What if they reject me?” The ego’s projections fuel the tempest.

Breaking Free:

Awareness is our lifeline. When we recognize the ego’s projections, we gain power. We can untangle the threads, step back, and ask: “Is this attachment serving me?”


Dear reader, the ego’s projections are like mirages—they shimmer with promise but evaporate upon closer inspection. As we learn to discern between reality and illusion, we reclaim our inner calm. Let go, gently. The mind need not be a battlefield; it can be a garden of serenity. May your journey toward detachment and clarity be filled with compassion—for yourself and others.

Love, Light, Peace & Joy
