“Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.” - Ekhart Tolle
To move from a place of I should ...do this because I am a good person, to moving from a place of moving from the now, from how the spirit is moving in the moment without definition, is a master's path.
To be in the confines of the ego definition of who you are is very different from moving in the world from your conscious Presence. The conscious Presence is freedom.
May you move in this world from a place of Peace that goes beyond all understanding.
