An example of a tragi-comedic pseudo-psychological advice:
'Meditate regularly to regulate ego'
You don't want to kill it permanently, but you want to be able to enter states where it is incredibly suppressed, and other states where it's unleashed.
True mastery is control over the ego and the ability to switch between these 2 systems.'
One question: What/Who is the 'you' that wants to take 'control'?
Is it rocket science to see the simple trick?
