Like I have stated before I am quite new and have a few questions to ask our more experienced members, if they would be so kind as to lend some wisdom
When I examine my motives for practice, it seems that the answers I come up with are very self-centered. I want wisdom, I aspire to enlightenment, why, because I want it! When I examine why I want it, well I'm not 100% sure, but I am beginning to feel my motives may be selfish and ego-driven. I strive to be ego-free and unselfish and believe practice is the way to accomplish this, but if practise has its roots in ego and selfishness can is this possible? Has anyone else encountered this and how does one overcome this?
Is the ambition to be desire free a desire in itself? And if so is it not self defeating?
This is what I have so far, only two questions but the two biggest I have so far. I am sure there will be more
