Who are you? Do you define yourself by your career? Your gender? Race? Citizenship? Are you a mom? dad? husband? wife? brother? sister?
Many of us live in this illusion of who we are in this world and who we should be. There is no such thing. We are not this body, mind, or ego. These are all impermanent; eventually, none of these will exist, the body dies, and so does all of our identities.
We are eternal, infinite beings.
Once we realize the illusion we have created, we will see that no-thing we have attached to, including our own identity, really matters.
The conflict in this world exists because of the struggle with illusions.
The illusion of money, power, success, and especially the illusion of separation.
Once we realize we are all the same and are all connected to the one Source, one Energy, the illusion of self, will disappear. And the TRUE Self will be the only thing left. The true self is really our pure inner energy, our pure inner being, that is one with the Universe. This means living in peace and harmony with ourselves and every other living being, without being attached. The universe will provide what is necessary, if we listen (to our inner guidance) and go with the flow and direction of life.
On a practical level, to achieve this, takes some contemplation and meditation; Self awareness, and self observation. Catching the patterns of illusion and attachments and coming back to your inner truth.
Sending Love and Light on your Journey!
