Transcend identity. Go back. Read it again. Transcend identity.
In this transaction there is an apparent gain and an apparent loss (from the perspective of the convergence of phenomena which we call a human being).
Really this is no loss. The identity is the sole opaqueness which veils Being Consciousness and Bliss.
But to the sense of a separate self, the ego, loss of identity is the loss of everything.
It is like a sock-puppet fearing the removal of the sock!
One doesn’t even have to remove the sock. Just identify with the hand. Then what power does the sock have?
Even the coming and going of the sock are of no consequence! Death has been conquered. Death never was. Birth never was!
And the puppet-play itself, reveals itself to be a play.
