It is said from time to time that “It is not that I don’t care, it is that I don’t mind.” When it is used in the English language and coming from the person or ego there is a basic explanation that not minding has a softer feeling to it, while not caring has a colder meaning.
The way you think about eating is an identity. The way you think about your job or career is an identity, the way you think about the money you earn is an identity. In fact, don’t they all just get categorized under the identity of whatever you call yourself.
The identity of whatever you call yourself, let’s look at that for a moment or two. Look for your – self and what you know it as. Sooner or later if you look deeply, the awareness will come that all of what you know your identity as is only a bunch of thoughts. All of what you know your identity to be are only thoughts nothing more.
You keep getting caught up in thoughts. Getting caught up in thoughts means you are taking them personally and in doing so they create the experience of meaning something to you. It is in the personal attachment to the meanings that causes an, (your), identity to remain.
I want to share a true story that happened to me this morning. The reason I bring this up is to show how everything in this life experience is a pointing back to realizing you are the True Nature, and not the thought of being a person / ego-identity.
