Big Mind & Identity

Practicing headlessness and shifting into the Big Mind view helps me wear away any fixed identification. I find myself as capacity for the world, becoming whatever arising in the present. When I walk, I find myself walking through myself. When I talk with someone, I find myself take on their face – and talking with myself as the other. My identity is fluid, arising simultaneously with whatever arises in the present. I see a tree outside the window, and become the tree. I see the sky through the trees, and find myself as the sky. I see a homeless person by the road and take on his appearance.

And as I become more familiar with having no fixed identity, I can more easily find myself as headless and enter into/as the Big Mind view.

One helps the other, in a beautiful symmetry.
