“Intellectual capital became the ego’s most envied prize. Wisdom was forgotten in favor of intellectual prowess and material accumulation. Thinking and doing became glorified, while the quiet reflective states of being and realization were cast aside and drowned out by the ego.”

The ego-self is a mistaken identity. One place we can start looking for the authentic self is in the quiet moments we can reflect about what is within. Going back to quiet, aloneness, and nature is the beginning of self-fulfillment and permanent happiness.
