What is our identity? Each one of us has formed a different identity which comprises of several identities over the years. The identity and experiences that we have had over the years stay buried within us long after we think we have forgotten them. We associate ourselves with this identity often forgetting that we are not the stories that we have experienced. For instance I might have worn different identities over the years of child, student, teenager, adult, mother, wife, daughter and sister, none of which are the true reflection of who I am. The true self is that which resides within, unaffected by the experiences we have had. The more we are in contact with this self, the greater the peace and clarity we feel within.
