We describe ourselves by our roles. We think we are our thoughts and emotions. We believe we are our histories. We hold tight to these proxies of identity out of fear: who are we if we are not what we do, think, or feel?
A very good question, that. Who are we, really? The better we can answer this question, the less energy would we waste trying to make up for not knowing. Though your mileage may vary, success becomes easier for people who know the answer to this question.
I don’t think we can answer the question here. In fact, I am pretty sure no words would do justice. But I can give you a solid clue to learning who you really are.
Just answer this: “Who is asking the question, ‘Who am I?‘ ?”
