Your knowledge about how our universe works and how you play the role of creator in it frees you to see everything as information. After all, since every "thing" is a reflection of your beliefs, every "thing" is valuable and useful information about your beliefs. When anything in your life is displeasing, you are being given important information about the nonalignment of your beliefs and desires.
That information's role is not to define who you are, it is to provide you feedback regarding whether your beliefs in those areas are in alignment with your desires. That information, like all else, is merely a thermometer reading, because your material reality is always and without fail a reflection of your beliefs, not a reflection of you. You are not your beliefs. Your beliefs are subjective and changeable. They are not who you really are.
