Establishing One's Identity

Many of us may have found it necessary at some time to establish our identity. It may have been when cashing a money order, on the receipt of a registered letter, or when voting at a public election. Sometimes when traveling in a foreign country it has been necessary to prove one's identity. In some way, either through a photograph, passport, written signature, friend, or through some other type of witness, we were able to give satisfactory proof of our identity.

Our human identity is established by certain traits or characteristics. These, however, have no permanence; they are subject to material conditions. The passing of time may change us or we may reside in a different locality, so that we can no longer depend on past conditions for identification. But not so with spiritual identity, which is real and changeless.
