     " No matter where you go, there you are." I've always loved this simple statement, because for me it speaks both to the ego always hanging around, and our transcendence of it at the same time. I don't  know that we can ever leave our egos completely but we can get more awareness around it by watching our thoughts and questioning them. By understanding that we are not our thoughts, we are not the sum of what we tell ourselves about who we are. In the act of self inquiry  into these ideas about "who we are", we break free if only for a moment and have an experience of the authenticity of ourselves, the " Now" of this moment. And that's a place the ego just can't go.
