The identities are the hardened layers of protection against the fragility of the shocking moment when realization hits that there is absolutely no control. This encounter is such a crushing touch, that one must surrender to it in that very moment. Even if it is just for the moment. Everything is constructed to brace against this moment of feeling so small and so insignificant. But there is an opening here- in this surrender that cannot come through invocation or demand. The realization that somehow you belong in this place. That in this small opening you must become immense. To step in and become. There is no step by step. No connect the dots. Only the opening to the utter fragileness as it reveals itself.
