Most of our energy goes into upholding our importance

Most of our energy goes into upholding our importance… If we are capable of losing some of that importance, two extraordinary things happen to us.  One, we free our energy from trying to maintain the illusory idea of our grandeur; and, two, we provide ourselves with enough energy to enter into the second attention to catch a glimpse of the actual grandeur of the universe.
Carlos Casteneda

Hat-tip to Johnnie Moore and Viv McWaters, two seriously cool people.
