3. Identification/Disidentification/Self-Identification: The Key to Freedom
One of the fundamental concepts of Psychosynthesis, the process of Identification-Disidentification-Self identification is based on Roberto Assagioli’s concept that “we are dominated by that with which we identify”.. whether it is a self-image, a role in life, or a behavior pattern. He goes on to say “...we are capable of dominating, directing, and utilizing everything from which we disidentify.”
This process is therefore a recipe for personal freedom, for breaking the action-reaction cycle we so often find ourselves in when we are attached or identify to things, ideas, and concepts. “Dis-identifying” with external or internal factors enables us to “Self-identify”- to perceive the role of our true, innate nature: our Self, in establishing and guiding us through life.
