No matter what form it assumes, the formless unconscious push behind ego is to focus on the concept of who we think we are; the illusionary self-created through our emotions and thoughts. This can be a gift or a grind depending on whether the emotions/thoughts are positive or negative. One connects us with Source, the other separates us into duality. Once we accept with compassion (forgive) that all form is impermanent/unstable, we can allow a peace to rise within us awakening us to the higher dimension of formlessness within us that is beyond what we call physical death.
