Who am I ?

So, Descartes proved that I exist and I am not an illusion.
and if through Thoughts the identity of ‘Self’ emerges then the existence of I should be found on a metaphysical plane.

— According to Freud ‘ I ' may be ‘ego’ — a distinct metaphysical part of our conscience which makes the decisions for us.

— In other words Jung hinted that ‘I’ or Self is a phenomenon at the centre of our existence. It is a transcendent, unchanging part of ourselves, and each individual is born with it.

1. The lowest ones are the tamasikas, the bound(bound by the worldly joys and sorrows).
2. Then there are the rajasikas, the egotistical, who talk always about “I,” “I.” They do good work sometimes and may become spiritual.
3. The highest are the sattvikas, the introspective, those who live only in the Self.
These three qualities — tamas, rajas, and sattva — are in everyone, and different ones predominate at different times. What we call God is really only the Self, from which we have separated ourselves and which we worship as outside us; but it is our true Self, all the time, the one and only God.
