Core identity - Who Are You & Where Are You Headed?
1. At Birth - your core identity is created
Core identity = EGO
Our core identity map consists of our beliefs, fears, opinions, doubts, judgments, criticisms, etc.
2. We never return to question what's on the map.
We never return to question what's on the map.
We assume that our map is real.
We assume that our map is leading us to a place that we really want to go.
We swear that our map is the gospel truth.
We have zero tolerance for other maps.
3. What we believe is what's been handed down to us.
Our thoughts and beliefs are not our own. They are the beliefs of our parents, teachers, preachers, government, and mass media.
We don't question our beliefs we just double down on the thoughts and beliefs we already hold as true.
4. Why do we double down instead of examining our core beliefs and thoughts?
We don't examine our beliefs because if the core is wrong then everything crumbles.
We are too afraid to discover that our entire existence is made up - a fabrication.
If I am not this made-up self who I believe myself to be then who am I? The answer to this question is too scary so we keep doubling down on a false sense of self instead.
