He who seeks happiness can find it in two ways. He can find it when the mind is absorbed and the body pleasantly active. This happens during certain games and during one or two agricultural activities. This pleasure is very great. He can find it also when the mind is absorbed in a good book: on such occasions we as good as leave our bodies and go on a journey without them. Few if any pleasures excel this. And the secret is that in both cases the ego is disposed of - quite forgotten. Conscious or not, that is the goal of everyone, to forget his ego, and to subdue the ego’s two servile and obsequious slaves - the restless body and the wandering, lunatic mind.[p .35, 1]
