Ingredients of ego,explained Loading
Who am I at the core of my being?
Is that just a void inside me?
Yes it is.
But I am a collection of contrasts, the opposites,
where there rest states like envy, hatred, sorrow and sickness
in harmony with the emotions of lively, colorful songs.
The synergy of these feelings gives birth to the ego.
That is nothing but an illusion.
As the twilight set in,
the treasure of emptiness is the only truth I found inside me.
Who am I at the core?
A void?
Yes. Nothing more than a void.
~Nida Zehra
