Just a Thought--Content

Is the delusion of who you think you are, just that?  Are you who you think you are because of the collective content within?  This is a real question to be aware of because what if you have yourself all wrong or right?  Isn’t that the struggle for most?  To be direct, it isn’t a matter of right and wrong, but of identifying with “you” and who you think you are.  Is that possible?  Of course, because there is something more than the limits of “you” or “me”.  Take this test--when someone insults you or something you believe, value, desire or have, do you react?  Does the mind say something?  This is identifying with "you", the reaction is "you" reacting verbally or physically.  It really doesn't matter if it was praise or otherwise.   You see, something constructed on shallow or fragile ground or content will react or wobble in its foundation.  A solid and rooted foundation would not react because it is whole.  Are we satisfied with the reflection in the mirror, the way we look, talk, believe, complements and desire etc.?  Is that the delusion?—that we come to conclusion?  Example—where did your name come from?  It could be any number of a hundred thousand, but your parents chose the one you identify with—the same with everything about you—content.  And how is one aware of it without identification?  As we know hot water from cold--one must separate the two in order to observe it.  Simple.  How can something unconscious awaken from delusion and content?  A question is a great start because it expresses the awareness to awaken for ones long unconscious sleep with content.
