Excerpt About Greed
Relating to Essence from the Perspective of GreedWhen most people experience their Essence, however, they treat it like something on the emotional level: a possession, a thing, a goodie. This is the basic make-up of the personality, to relate to things from the perspective of greed. It is this tendency of the personality to grasp for pleasure, even for the deep satisfaction of Essence, which brought about all misery. Unless this tendency dissolves, your attitude towards Essence will be the same as your attitude toward material goods. Your identity still resides in the personality, in greed, in suffering.
