Conceit

When the Citta is completely free from greed and hatred, all that remains of the Psyche - personification of the currently running process - is identification.  Because this is free from greed and hatred, it's relative purity becomes it's next hurdle: it is utterly seduced by it's own reflections and like Narcissus, drowns in them.  For too many of us, this is as far as it goes: we become famous teachers.

However, for those that know of the way, this state of affairs degenerates into conflict with the way things actually are, in and of themselves: Dukkha - stress, the practitioner gets back to working with the knowable.
