As we come to experience duality, of separation so that we can find our way back to Source again. So we do need an identity. Its sort the whole purpose of being here.
This is the game of life. We come into physicality with certain patterns you may say that creates the frequency that is unique to you, within those patterns there will also be certain unique imprints, distortions of the true energy that you are. Those distortions can be modified and cleared but then our true frequency is the highest vibration within the parameters of what we can be. Which is different for everyone.
We have not come here to dissolute the ego. We have come here to transmute the illusion that somehow the ego is not worthy of our Love, that somehow what we seek is outside of ourselves.
We are here to accept and Love our Selves so that we can accept all others. Because as we accept ourselves unconditionally and freely we can also Love others in the same way.
When we walked through all layers of ourselves we can see that we come from the same Source. Fragmented into beautiful unique expressions of the light which we all are.
So be You, be You in all your brightest and beautiful uniqueness. That why you're here!
