True identity is neither in Buddha’s discipline nor in Mara’s army; neither in the gods nor the demons; neither in affirmation nor in negation. True identity resides in the part that witnesses the struggle. We are what observes, not what we observe. Once you verify that the struggle with the many “I”s doesn’t last indefinitely, that your persistence brings you to a point of combustion, you have verified the principle of Transformation.
