I’m talking about personal identity and actually, it’s not even half, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Personal reality is like a swamp we get stuck in when we believe the personal identity ‘space suit’ we have donned is all that we are. On the other hand, this limited ‘ego’ identity is not the enemy we make it out to be. Without it, we wouldn’t even be able to be here. It helps keep us grounded.
So what to do? This is what I do…
Look around, everything is changing. Look within and find that dimension of yourself where nothing ever does, this is the deeper dimension of who you are. It’s where love is.
To keep one foot in both ‘worlds’ is the trick. For this, balance is required. Yoga, meditation, and breathwork (holotropic, pranayama) are some of the best tools I know of to help achieve this.
Anyway, why even bother identifying with a temporary role we play and just play it like we would a game? Why not identify with a deeper dimension of what we are – consciousness itself?
This, in my opinion, is the core teaching in all true spiritual teachings.
