The Silent Witness

Almost every ego contains at least an element of what we might call “victim identity”. Some people have such a strong victim of themselves that it becomes the central core of their ego. Resentment and grievances form an essential part of their sense of self.

Even if your grievances are completely “justified,” you have constructed an identify for yourself that is much like a prison whose bars are made of thought forms. See what you are doing to yourself, or rather what your mind is doing to you. Feel the emotional attachment you have to your victim story and become aware of the compulson to think or talk about it. Be there as the witnessing presence of your inner state. You don’t have to do anything. With awareness comes transformation and freedom.

– Stillness Speaks, The Egoic Self, Eckhart Tolle

    This very posting is exactly what I am feeling this today. Grievances do mould us into a different identify than we used to be. Just be aware of the change, transformation and eventually freedom I hope…..^o^

      I would say that it actually breaks a certain pattern and dissolves the identity.

      Be aware of every the surrounding inch and edge, and the transformation will take place naturally.
