The Illusion of Me

You align yourself with the form [of the moment]. Don’t fight the form. The moment you fight the form, the form of me gets strengthened in yourself. The me that is based on my thought forms gets stronger through the struggle, the reaction, the reactivity of what is. Ultimately, the illusion of me gets strengthen by fighting what is.
