Don't take your melodrama so seriously. Let's remember who we really are -- that is, souls, not egos. The ego is who you think you are. Who you think you are will die with the body because it's part of this incarnation. But your soul, which has these qualities of deep wisdom and love and peace and joy, is just here, watching it all go by.
