Who Am I?
The only question that ever need be asked is "Who Am I?" It is not a question that you ask and then just agree with the thoughts that come that say "I am me" "I am male" "I am female" those thoughts will come...so will the thoughts to tell you that you are a mother, a father, a son, a daughter...this is not a question that is answerable by the mind/thoughts and the mind/thoughts are what have been relied upon to explain to you who you are.
This is deeper than what the mind/thoughts can offer and if you sit with the question "Who Am I" not expecting an answer...not demanding to understand...but ask the question and then wait...wait and put your attention on the stillness that is not thought.
Continue deeper past the thoughts of who you are, what you do for a living or what your opinions are...what you look like, what you value...what country you are from...this is not about the identity you have created in the world.
Is what you have found...true...or is it just a story that you have told for so long that you think it is who you are.
If you think you know who you are and there lies any possibility that who you have found yourself to be...can be taken from you...then how can it be who you are?
This isn't to drive one crazy...though it can if you believe what you hear in the mind...this is where something deeper in you begins to speak and there isn't a language I know of that can speak it...yet once it is heard...within this paradox...you know it...you may not be able to explain it...but anyone that knows it...knows when one has glimpsed itself.
This moment you are offered the opportunity to investigate with integrity and resolve "Who am I?"
