Who am I?
The question “who am I?” is the first and probably the most important question in the universe.
After all, it is the question that started it all – when consciousness became self-aware and pondered on possibilities. It begs an answer starting “I am…”, and then leaves the rest as a blank canvas on which we carve our unique experience in search of the answer.
I am … what?
In order to answer this question, the consciousness became creator and set about finding out, and we humans, (as projections of source energy and spiritual beings in human form), are the ones who are continually feeding back the possibilities. Like programs in a super computer feeding back to the mainframe every possibility in every time and every space.
Are you a doctor, a lawyer, a servant, a master? Are you experiencing riches or poverty, sickness or wellbeing? Are you living in fear or in hope, with love or with loneliness? And what are the possibilities ahead of you if you are living in any of these conditions?
This question of who we are. is the one we have all been trying to answer since the beginning, and as we live our life and expand our experience, it will always be the most eternal question, because, there are an infinity number of answers to that question.
As I write this, people all over the planet are waking up to the start of a new decade, So what better question to start with on 1sth January that this?
You see, the question, “Who am I?” is so much more than just a question about who you are now, because once you answer it, the second question is then “and who do I want to become?”
Everyone on the planet, in fact, in every living THING on the planet will answer this in a different way. That’s what makes our planet so rich and diverse. Some would call the process ‘evolution’ – a process of expansion and change based on previous experience and knowledge.
In terms of our human and spiritual evolution, this question helps us to become the creators of or own reality if we allow it too. Because it gives us a starting point and a purpose:
1. Who are we now? and
2. Who do we want to become?
When I asked myself this question today, I came to the conclusion that I am currently an educator and a writer, I understand this about myself because people pay me to teach and people pay me to write. But I am also many more things than that. I am a daughter, a mother, a sister, a friend, an ex-dancer, a would-be linguist, a poor pianist and a bad cook!
I’m not moaning or complaining about being any of those things, it’s just who I have become in the several decades I’ve been living this perspective. With so many things to chose from that currently define me, asking myself the second question about who I wanted to become, was more tricky.
There was so much I could do, so much I think I should do, and still so much I dream of doing. I’m going to have to narrow it down a bit.
So for now at least, I decided that, whilst I do get paid to write (at least part of my living), my ambitions in that area are greater. I decided I want to be a better writer, in fact, I really want to be a published author so that I can go into a bookshop and see my work on the shelves. Now that, for me, would be amazing.
So this is going to be my focus in the months ahead. For now, I understand who I currently am and where I want to go/who I want to be next, I can begin the path to creating this reality.
It all starts with the first question – Who am I?
So today, as you welcome in the new decade, I invite you to ask yourself the same thing, and join me in my quest – not necessarily in becoming a published author, or even a writer unless you’ve always wanted to do that too. My invite is for you to join the quest to become the next YOU. The new and expanded version of yourself – the person you have always dreamed of becoming but never quite had the courage or the belief in yourself to put into practice.
Every single person reading this will answer this in a different way
So take some time today to answer the question for yourself:
Who are you now and who do you want to be?
Leave a comment with your answer below and over the next few days and weeks, let’s see if we can’t make some headway together on living our dreams.
2020 is a new decade, now just a new year – a perfect time to start your personal transformation towards who you really want to be – so be brave…..forget about what you want to watch on TV or what you’re going to have for dinner and ask yourself the important questions today….
All the best
