Who Are You?

—And What Are You?

There is a ship going from point A to point B. Along the way the ship starts falling apart. Old pieces of wood are replaced with new pieces of wood. By the time the ship arrives at point B only one original piece of wood remains. So, is it the same ship? What if there were two pieces left?

You are not a ship, but the same metaphor can apply to you. I believe that if we are honest with ourselves—that the most fascinating problem in the world, is who am I?

The Cause of All Suffering

It is a bold statement, but one that I stand behind. The cause of all suffering is not knowing who we are. Or even what we are. We create a world based on false identities that when challenged, create a war with others and ourselves.

Who and What You Are

The problem with writing about identity is it becomes just another belief. Another mask to add to the collection that one can wear. Nobody can tell you who you are, it must be discovered for yourself.

We Are All That

The more heretical and paradoxical statement I will make is that we are all in the present moment. At the very base of existence that is what you/I are.

We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
