Lose Yourself

“Authentic human interactions become impossible when you lose yourself in a role.”  ~Eckhart Tolle

And that reminded me of this:

Maude [to a motorcycle officer]:  “Oh, don’t get officious. You’re not yourself when you’re officious– that is the curse of a government job.”  from the movie Harold and Maude
