Excerpt About Identity and Attachment

Identity with the Internal Body Image Creates Attachment to the Body Itself
The next layer of identity is what we call the internal body image, or identification with the body regardless of the image, attachment to the body itself. Internal body image forms the core of the identity at this level, because of identification with the actual sensation of the body, the actual feelings in the body... this identity with the internal body image creates attachment to the body itself, to physical existence itself. You need to understand that this is not your identity.
