Who are you?
It might seem like a difficult question to answer, but the answer is simpler than you realize.
You are the awareness that notices and rules over both your mind and body. Better put, your mind and body are the vehicles that your awareness drives. Your mind and body are part of you, but are not you—you are the driver.
To know that you are the driver of your mind and body is to have true free will. It is to drive your thoughts, words and actions as you choose, not as your mind or body demand. It is to rule over yourself, and to not be ruled by your… self.
To identify with your mind or body as who you are, is to be driven by your vehicles—to be on autopilot. To identify with externals like your job or titles is to be driven by life—to be on life’s autopilot.
To know who you are is to have the power of choice—self-control, or rather, control over the self, control over the mind and body.
To know who you are is to know that you are your own creator—the God within.
”Be still, and know that I am God. — Psalm 46:10 (KJV)
”Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. — Carl Jung
”We seldom realize, for example, that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society. — Alan W. Watts
