You can identify yourself with the poor or the rich, with a house, a family, a country, or the whole of the planet – it is one of the tricks Man uses in order to simulate unity.
Identity begins with the Ego, the Ego-centric person. Then the feeling of identity can expand to family and society, a socio-centric identity. And the identity can expand to embrace the planet – a planetarian identity.
Identification with something is one of the most hypocritical conditions.
To identify yourself with a group in the name of unity, and still remain alone, is one of the favorite tricks of Man, in order to deceive loneliness.
Or you identify yourself with your faith in such extreme degree, that you are this faith. And that is a neurotic condition.
