True Identity

Who we are is not an accumulation of life experiences, thoughts, feelings, emotions, labels or descriptions, accomplishments and achievements. Who we are is not based on an accumulation of how many years we have lived and how much knowledge we have attained. By gaining familiarity with the fundamental condition of our natural state, we are introducing our self to our true identity which has always been present, the fundamental stability that is pervasively at ease no matter what is going on and is beyond anything that can be described.

With the commitment to resting naturally for short moments repeated many times, without labeling everything within descriptive frameworks (past, present, future), we allow a natural unfolding that is so entirely gentle and revealing. The spontaneous instinctive recognition of this fundamental soothing energy of the Basic State as who we truly are, simultaneously reveals that all thoughts, emotions, ideas, sensations, and knowledge are empty of their own being. All viewpoints are realized to be insubstantial and inseparable from the ground of being! What a relief!

With this natural recognition, we tap into supreme wisdom and beneficial activities that are effortless and not contrived. No longer is life hard work, nor are relationships hard work. We see everyone as our very selves. We can face anything and everything with natural confidence and fearlessness. Test it out in your own experience! There is nothing to achieve, as the natural presence of awareness is simply the gift of being human, and is always here whether we are recognizing it or not.
