Your identity is determined by recognizing the Source of that identity --- God!
You are not the forgotten grandmother, the esteemed lawyer, the underappreciated mom, the middle child, the powerful politician. These are roles you have chosen to help you learn, to help you have experiences and encounters with others for the purpose of remembering who you truly are.
Too many people get lost in the illusion of this world. Too many see themselves as better than others or as a victim. This is powerlessness. Believing you are these identities strips of you true power, the power that comes from your Unity with God. He has given everything you need to be happy. You won't find it in seeing yourself as different, in judgment, in seeing from a two hearted perspective.
You will BE His joy and peace when you see from a one hearted perspective, when you know everyone and everything is a part of you. Then you can fill whatever role He asks you to fill with joy --- which may or may not be the same thing you are doing now --- not for what it can do for you but for what it can do for His glory, for the greater whole.
If everyone realized this, we would have Heaven on Earth. And there is no role better than another. Being kind, compassionate, loving, trying to shine His Light in all instances -- this can be done in all instances, all roles, all encounters, and these acts are far greater than the vehicle or role He places you in to deliver these gifts. Fulfilling your Divine destiny and role is the most holy thing you can do and one which gives you an inner joy that is far more than any that can come from this world.
