Our Problem: We Identify With Everything

We acquire an identity, and cherish it.

We identify with being a guru (we believe we know),|
a student (we believe we don’t know),
a religion, a group, a God or deities,
lifestyle, family, job, class, culture, country, left/right,
gender, football team … the list is endless.

Taking sides causes enemy-identification:
emotions surface, and we take and give offence.

Even identifying with meditation, we become bound,
when the whole point is letting go.
We may act as if we love, but it’s still all about me.

Our true nature has neither name nor identity.
Empathy recognises others’ suffering,
shows compassion, and is pure love.
