There is a saying by myTeacher that "Truth uses everything available to point towards itSelf." This can be seen through music, through movies, through daily interactions one has with life ... through everything in the world if one is paying attention (and even if one is not...it still will show up at the most unexpected of times).
The other day at a cellular provider a woman was taking a chip out of a cellphone and as she did she said "this is your identity, it has everything about you on it, and she took it out and then she placed it in another cellphone. As she did this there was a recognition of the obviousness that the identity can not be who one is. If it was then you couldn't just move it from one thing to another, and if she lost the chip or broke it during the move from one phone to another, what was lost? Just an accumulation of opinions, memories, photos and videos?
The brain is the SIM card, it does the same thing that the SIM in a cellphone does, only on a larger scale. So you cannot be the information that is stored, you are not the brain. Maybe one day they will be switching or designing bodies around the brain, then it will be more obvious that one is also not the body. But if you are not the information/identity stored, if you are not the brain, if you are not the body … then "Who Are You?" Go ahead ask "Who Am I?" If I am not the identity, who I am Really?
This is where one can only point and always point if one is true to the Self. You are what the identity appears In, but you have misidentified yourself as the identity, the accumulation of thoughts and beliefs. Obviously there is nothing to get worked up about, since you have always been who you are … you just thought you were something other than who you are. Now you can begin to relax into not knowing who you are, so it can be Revealed.
It may sound like one is saying the same thing over and over again, in different ways, any way that it shows up to put little cracks in "knowing." That is because one is. (Smile). Do not be fooled by the power and strength of the mind/brain to continue to keep your true Self hidden. Like a computer, it's job is to make you forget that everything that appears before you on the screen is an accumulation of 1s and 0s … the same is with the mind/brain … there is only 1 mind/brain and there is less than 0 that you are IN.
Repetition is the Gift.
