Unentangling from "Me, Myself & I"

     "... the 'heartwood,' the pith, the essence of the Buddhist teachings is the practice of non-clinging. It is living with a mind void of the feelings of 'I' and 'mine'.
     When we (take voidness as our fundamental principle), we have a wonderful tool for understanding and making use of every one of the many concepts and skillful means that lie within the Buddhist tradition."
