Y2 – Day 188 – True Identity

Life varies its stories. Time changes everything, yet what is truly valuable – what is worth keeping – is beyond time. – Ruth Senter

We are emotionally attached to our identities that we give to ourselves that society labels us with.  Our true identity, our authentic self, is not our ego.

The ego invites you into a ‘story’ and keeps you away from the vulnerable, welcome and open self.  It is a self-imposed prison that the world abides and ascribes pain to.

You have to be willing to let go of who you are, thought you were and believe you should be.  And if I truly know who I am, your attacks will not bother me, what you think of me will not matter.

How do we get there?  With Love, our ‘stories’ dissolve and we do not focus on problems, your body becomes a teaching instrument and the accumulation of your mean, erroneous thoughts disappear.

My life on this spiritual journey has been a series of letting go of ‘my’ identities.  It is a matter of holding on to roles that bind us or surrendering to what is.

Our radiance is sweet and Grace brings us back home.

“You will either step forward into growth, or you will step back into safety.”  Abraham Maslow
