Upholding our importance

I read these words by Carlos Castaneda (I once read some of his books, which I found fascinating but difficult to get into at times). They really spoke to me, so thought I’d share them.

“Most of our energy does upholding our importance. If we were capable of losing some of that importance two extraordinary things would happen to us. One, we would free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur and two, we would provide ourselves with enough energy to catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the universe.”

Wow, huh?
