What a person identifies themselves with is very important.
If a person identifies themselves with their ego, they think that they are separate to everything else, so things are I, me and mine.
It is best to identify yourself with being one with everything else and being one with God.
Then realise that you are one with everything else and one with God.
So you are God and god is you.
You are everything else and everything else is you.
All is one.
To become aware of consciousness, can identify yourself with consciousnes. Then not so obsessed with your thoughts, emotion and body.
