I love these insights! Thank you so much for taking the time to share all of this.

I agree with you, so much of the spiritual world seems to be replacing one identity for another in that attempt to 'get rid of' something that, so long as we're alive, we aren't ever going to get rid of.

We all have bodies, faces, personalities - characteristics of 'self' that we can't transcend. And it seems the harder we TRY to escape ourselves, the more ensnared we are apt to become - we become just as identified with not identifying as we were identified with our identities ;)

It seems that in order to truly find peace in this life, we can't exist in the poles or the extremes. We can't exist totally attached to our identities nor can we exist trying to escape them. We must exist in the middle - holding them lightly and allowing them to hold us lightly too. Not trying to get too granular about what we are, while also acknowledging that we have specificity and that's ok.

We will never fully know ourselves, and our core self is unchanging - the paradox exists at all times.

So can we make room for that, without over-analyzing ourselves into a state of blindness?

As you awaken from one cult, you fall asleep into another.

The United States is simply an oversized cult with a number of sub-cults, but it goes much deeper than that, and I replaced the word "dream" with the word "cult." I might say "system" or any number of words, and each one leads to a different compartmentalized area of the brain which occurs automatically, below the threshold of conscious awareness. Welcome to the matrix...

Yes, because from the time we're born we are domesticated by the cult we were born into and taugh how to think, act, dress, BE. Time to shake off the programming and get wild AF!
