“The Identity Issue”
In this issue of Retro Retro Magazine, we look into ourselves to find the experiences, revelations and realities that define us as individuals. We follow the real stories of people who have found themselves in the midst of this uniform world and those that have had to redefine themselves after facing tragedy.
In the egoic state, your sense of self, your identity, is derived from your thinking mind – in other words, what your mind tells you about yourself: the storyline of you, the memories, the expectations, all the thoughts that go through your head continuously and the emotions that reflect those thoughts. All those things make up your sense of self. – Eckhart Tolle
