Detaching from ego

A big part of meditation, a daily / regular practice implemented by many in my friends’ circle, is awareness and seeing things for what they really are.

This leads to a detachment between objects and your identity. It is no longer about preserving our own sense of identity or attachment e.g. “my phone” or “I am an accountant” etc, but a realisation that these are terms we’ve prescribed to be directly associated with us – that they turn into us.

Meditation allows us to separate what we perceive, to what really is.
