Often, when we say, “I could never do that,” what we really mean is, “I don’t want to do that…” which really in itself actually means “my attachments and identities don’t want to do that.”
The “I” has nothing to do with it. Rather, the hijack is in full swing, leading us away from what the “I” truly wants.
Afraid for its survival, our identity goes on overdrive.
And, unfortunately, we end up the poorer for it.
