Identity

Rating: 5.0
This is the most important weapon
In the arsenal of the egocentric self
So much of the mind is hanged on this simply human construct
Your identity is the symbol of your external being
Your identity can make or break you
Identity has caused so many to commit atrocities
Identity has pushed so many to the top
Identity has produced so many bullies
Identity is a malignant cancer on the psyche of man (woman)
Identity is causes ongoing battles even among close friends
Identity crisis is a thorn that can deflate even the strongest ego
But what is identity?
This is an illusion that has similar characteristics to glue
Identity will bind you to your gender or colour or tribe
Identity will glue you to your circle of friends
Identity is a force that drives the madness of materialism
Identity will totally take over the faculties of your mind
It will make you to reject your family members or friends
Identity will close all the crevices in your heart
And seal the well of compassion, hope and humility
It's only the selfless that have overcome this innocent looking monster
They have shed and left the scaly skin of identity behind
And now they walk free inside the realm of nothingness
They don't see neither gender barriers nor socially constructed walls
They see only human beings
They have removed the blindfold in their eyes
They are now walking on the path of Light
And now they are bowing down to unconditional Love
They are now occupying the substance of their being
Neither material things nor man-made identities can fool them anymore
They see right through the heart of Man (Woman)
And they are looking for fear, loneliness, hopelessness and darkness
They are always ready to cleanse the heart and pour the waters of the spirit
They are always ready to be the Love and be in Love
They are the daughters and sons of unconditional Love
