Sometimes you hear something that hits you right between the eyes. Today it was a question asked by a spiritual teacher: Who am I?
At first thought that didn’t seem like a difficult question to answer, and immediately I began running off in my head all the things I know I am.
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, friend. I am a weaver. I am creative. I am a community volunteer. I am curious which inspires me to ask questions, explore other cultures. I am a blogger. I am a reader. I am one who loves Maine, being on the water, eating lobster.
As these images of myself darted across an invisible screen, I suddenly stopped because all those things tell something about me but I’m not sure they tell who I am. Thus, the real question becomes who exists behind what I want people to see, who is the person hidden behind the descriptive words?
Wow, who am I is a much bigger question than it appears. I suppose the answer will come as I dig beneath the layers. I hope I like what is there.
How about you? Do you know who you are? If so, you are a lucky one; if not, I invite you to join me on a journey of discovery.
