Who are you? It's not what you think.

Have you ever asked yourself the question, "Who am I?" It's a question that many of us spend our entire lives trying to answer. We look to external sources, such as our career, our relationships, and our possessions, to define ourselves and give our lives meaning.

But the truth is, these things are fleeting and do not provide a lasting sense of self. They are constantly changing and often unreliable, and they do not define who we truly are. So, who are we then?

At the most fundamental level, we are consciousness. We are the awareness that is experiencing the world and all of its sights, sounds, and sensations. We are the observer, the witness to our own lives.

But beyond that, we are also much more than just our thoughts and emotions. These are constantly changing and often unreliable, and they do not define who we truly are. We are the space in which these thoughts and emotions arise. We are the silence and stillness that lies beneath the chaos of the mind.

This realization can be incredibly liberating, as it allows us to step back and see that we are not our thoughts and emotions. We are not our failures or successes. We are not our past or our future. We are simply the awareness that is experiencing all of these things.

So, the next time you find yourself feeling lost or unsure of your identity, try turning inward and exploring the consciousness that lies within. It is there that you will find your true self, the unchanging essence that is beyond the limitations of the ego and the labels that society tries to impose on us.

Remember, you are not your thoughts and emotions. You are not your circumstances. You are the awareness that is observing all of these things. And in that awareness lies a boundless sense of peace and freedom. So, embrace it and be at peace with yourself.

Take care,
