Identification with what? With mind and a mental position. Such identification, however, can easily creep in. The “I” feels diminished or offended because somebody doesn't believe what “I” said. Ego takes everything personally. Furthermore, it cannot tell the differences between an event and its reaction to that event. Every ego is a master of selective perception and distorted interpretation. Only through awareness can you see th totality of the situation or person instead of adopting one limited perspective.
In some cases, the mental image or concept of “my body” is a complete distortion of reality. As people have become more and more mindidentified, which is the intensification of egoic dysfunction, there has also been a dramatic increase in the incidence of anorexia in recent decades. If the sufferer could look at her body without the interfering judgments of her mind or even recognize those judgments for what they are instead of believing in them – or better still, if she could feel her body from within – this would initiate her healing.
You are closed. If action is possible or necessary, your action will be in alignment with the whole and supported by creative intelligence, the unconditioned consciousness which in a state of inner openness you become one with. You rest in God. We call it egoic because there is a sense of self, of I (ego), in every thought – every memory, every interpretation, opinion, viewpoint, reaction, emotion. This is unconsciousness, spiritually speaking. This entity is the ego itself. It also contains personal identifications, not only with possessions, but also with opinions, external appearance, long standing resentments, or concepts of yourself as better than or not as good as others, as a success or failure.
