The Great Nothing

"Very good. This new space is your reality. Whatsoever you have known up to now was not really you. It was the identity given by others -- the parents, the society, the world. Now you are coming to encounter yourself.
Sometimes it will be very scary -- so remember it. Sometimes you will feel that you are losing your identity... getting lost. So remember, that is how it has to be -- and go into it. Lose all track of yourself, and then for the first time you will be back home. You have to dissolve into this new space.
There is going to be a great struggle between the old and the new. Ahead there is going to be almost a war within you, because the new will try to spread all over you, and the old will try to resist, to fight it back, not to allow it to happen. There is going to be a conflict, a wrestling, between you and you, your past and your future, that which you have been up to now and that which you are going to be from now on."
