Trying to fight identity doesn’t work. Might actually drive you crazy.
When creating space for transformation to occur in your life, it is vital to remember that the space is already ever present. It is the recognition of the space within which allows us to actually transform. We release the reliance on ideas and identity and rest in the space that is the base of our being.
Some refer to this space as God, true self, or the Creator. Some refer to it as peace, truth, or the ability to choose.
The space that is necessary to release the hold or attachment to identity and ideas may appear to be two separate forms – the choice to be aware and the Source of the space Itself.
Are they really different or separate from each other?
Is there really any true separation?
Are you absolutely sure?
It is natural for many people to initially be very reliant on the self (even if some aren’t very productive in that action). Early on I thought I had to do all of the hard work of changing myself. On a relative, practical level I absolutely do have to take action to bring about change.
On the internal level that action is surrender to the present, aware space within that lovingly guides. As we listen and feel into that space we coalesce with it. It is there, always seeking – waiting – abiding to guide us in action that benefits all. As we release resistance to life in various ways and go within to acknowledge the space we realize separation is only by choice.
The space to transform is always present – we can choose to recognize it in any moment.
