If we want to be free we must first see how our mind has entangled itself with some identity. These identities are connected to usually traumatic experiences that we had earlier in life.
Sometimes it develops a more positive oriented identity connected with feeling superior or special. If we have a lot of financial abundance or fame then the mind entangles itself with that life experience, it develops a sense of superiority, an inflated sense of me. This is me, this who I am, and it speaks about it all the time. It always wants to speak about its story to reinforce itself, to make itself stronger.
If the mind is more negatively oriented, then it becomes a victim to our challenging situations – this happened to me and now I can’t heal this experience.
Positive polarity, negative polarity, but it’s the same ego-mind construct. If we want to really be free we have to be willing to give up all those stories, to give up identification with the stories of the mind and identification with the experience in the body. And only those with the willingness to truly surrender, to truly giving all up, to truly let go, will know freedom.
This is available to every single being without exception and is available right now. Not when the is trauma healed, not when I’m in a retreat center. Right now, with your willingness to surrender and your willingness to give up all stories.
So ask yourself who or what Am I? Without past experiences, without stories, and without defining experiences in the body as me. By being present, by opening the heart, we can see and release these unconscious beliefs, conditioning and patterns that keep us locked in this small conceptual self, and discover the freedom that lies beyond that.Share
