A case of mistaken identity

When we believe all of the conventional descriptions of who we are then we create an identity based on what other people have told us. By the direct observation of our own experience we are capable of coming to a definitive conclusion about the nature of our experience and thus about the nature of our true identity.

The painful way of life based on making all kinds of assumptions about who we are and what we need to be happy is shone through in an instant of instinctive relaxed openness. With the support of a community of people dedicated to relying on this innate clarity then there is no chance of even the slightest confusion around this most vital of recognitions. With nothing to defend there is no place for resentment and pain. With nothing to prove their is only spontaneous cooperation. With nowhere to go there is only total wonder at everything just as it is!
