Who am i?

Well... I don't know. I can't get an answer myself. Am I what I judge I am? Am I what others judge I am? Am I what an almighty entity out of this world judge I am? Am I strictly what my DNA informations tell I am? What should I choose to believe? Should I believe in myself as I'm the best person to judge my reflection mechanism, my logic, my reasons behind a thought, a movement? Should I believe others, in their majority, in their credibility. Should I believe that a God created me, and that he knows who I am? So what? I should just wait my entire life waiting for an answer that I don't know if it'll be given to me, or even if the being exists? Should I believe my body from the physical world? My composition, my genes? Even if I choose one, how can I know it's the right one? Are they all true? Do they all have a part of truth that when put together give a clearer view? Maybe they are all false? How can I know that I have all the options from which to choose? I guess I don't have enough information to know it.


What am I?

Maybe I can find a glimpse of an answer from my body. Essentially, my body is composed from multiple organs, that all have a function to maintain the body "alive", that themselves are constituted of tissues and cells. These cells are formed by molecules, which are an assemblage of atoms. Does it have an end? Is my body the end of the chain? Or am I part of a greater system, with a specific function? Can I find my role by understanding the greater system from which I'm part of? How do I manage to get that information? Is it a group of humans? The Earth maybe, which is part of the solar system? If I focus on human group, then I can clearly have a function in the community, which can have a goal. All members are a part of the group, which all have the same goal, the purpose of the gathering in the first place. So as part of the system, we all the same path, and everyone contribute to achieve. So what's the goal of the part of my system, my body? Keeping me alive? Then how can I achieve this purpose? By staying alive until the matter composing me can't keep up with my mind? Until the limits of the body? So then dying is the final achievement? So then, instead of getting an answer, I get this:


Why am I?

Why am I living? Why am I conscious of myself? Of what's surrounding me? Why can I ask what am I doing here when I can't get an answer? Does a question can exist without an answer? Is there a question to begin with? If the purpose of my body is to live the longer possible, then what should be the goal of my mind? Learning? So my body would live longer so my mind can learn more? It seems to make sense since to live is to experience. But is it accurate? Do I have enough information to get a decent answer? Maybe I'm in a false logic. Why learning, if all ends when my body dies? Do my experiences will be used in an "afterlife", if so, is it the greater system of my mind? It seems my body and my mind are part of a different system each other if true. But how to know without actually dying? I could just be an instrument from the universe to create order in the chaos, so I can efficiently disperse energy from my living time, with the help of emotions and thoughts, by manipulating the matter around me. Should I get an answer to live, or live to get an answer?

And then, the only conclusion that I can come across from that, is that I can believe. Is that who/what/why am I?

At 24 years old, I've only been a week-end in the United-State, so maybe. Quiet improbable tough.

I think we all naturally have a goal because there are pleasant and unpleasant feelings, emotion and suffering / happiness.

" if all ends when my body dies? Do my experiences will be used in an "afterlife",.."

Whether it does or does not, development is still good because it helps you in his life - it improves the quality of this life.

Welcome, to the forum.

You can change your name to Jack by legal process if you like.
Does changing your name change you as well?
Do you lose your existence by changing your name? No!You say, ‘My head,’ ‘My body,’ ‘My feet,’ ‘My eyes,’ ‘My ears.’ You don’t say, ‘I am head,’ ‘I am body,’ etc.
This means that all your body parts fall under ‘My.’ Similarly, you say, ‘My watch,’ ‘My eyeglasses,’ ‘My house,’ ‘My car,’ you don’t say ‘I am watch,’ ‘I am eyeglasses,’ etc., which means that all your belongings also go under ‘My.’

So then who is the owner of everything that comes under ‘My’? Keeping all the items that fall under “my” aside, you are only left with the owner – “I am" That “I” is precisely what you need to realize and that is Self Realization.

Thanks, and I think you're right. I believe development is important whether it disappear at death or not. But still I keep asking myself:"Why do atoms move and link themselves with the others?" In other words, why do they search to stabilize themselves? Why would something moves if it doesn't have a purpose for the movement? Maybe a force, something similar of a light object moving when the wind blows? A force we haven't seen yet with our technologies and our current knowledge of nature's mechanic. But to be honest I'm not familiar with what's below the atom and quantum theories.

IG: "Why do atoms move and link themselves with the others?" ..

What do you mean? What exactly are you trying to find out?

What you are actually is beyond words, but it would be not untrue to say you are nothing whatsoever other than pure, infinite, disembodied consciousness/intelligence; a field of miraculous infinite light; God dreaming itself; an infinite point of pure potential; or the infinite implications of nothing whatsoever.

The immediate presentation of this unspeakable actuality is the field of your experience, which is an instantaneously appearing virtual field of Radiant Presence as apparent qualities. This is the actuality of which every/ and any/ thing that you think exists consists. This is inclusive and complete; nothing whatever other than this field exists. In short, the entirety of Reality is the "bubble" of YOUR experience, the field of Radiant Presence, which alone exists.

This is the totality of Reality. This is not theoretical, but is actually, immediately real; always the case right here right now. theopendoorway.org...

If you really want to know what you are - what everything is - then check out Peter Browns website The Open Doorway.
Here is a short video to help you notice what is really going on.

Your actions define you.

They are not 'your' actions.
What is appearing to happen can only appear to happen is there is 'observingness'.
Are you not what is seeing and knowing that there is action appearing to happen?

a reply to: Itisnowagain I don't really search for an answer, I don't have enough information for that. I can make theories about my or others observations, but I can't talk with certainty. I'll be honest with you, your explanation and the guy you're talking about seems to be New Age points of view, or spiritual in essence, and I'll probably won't read his website. The fact that we have multiple theories on the subject means that we don't know it yet.

From your answer, it seems you believe you're not responsible for you actions, which I highly disagree with. It is a huge problem in society right now, and everyone should take responsability for their acts.

Well you wanted to know what you are.
Are you seeing these words?

Where would you search for you? And when?

Maybe the information you need is being provided - but you are not ready to look.
If you are not searching for an answer then why are you asking?
If you do not know what you are you cannot know what anything else is.

Because I don't know. Asking the question don't necessarily come with an answer attached to it. I don't search because I believe it's not the way to find the answer. Asking the question is to realize the lack of answers we have as human.

What would be being ready?




Where would you search for you? And when?

I would begin to ask, do the will came first or the matter?

And what things can believe? Thoughts.

You're a living thought; a living-soul, a living concept in the mind of God.

You are a tulpa.

Why? Because that's what living-thoughts do: they think living thoughts; they reproduce living concepts; they translate the Spirit; they create "children".

edited to add your quote and this:
Why in the mind? Because that is where thoughts reside.

For you, what does "be ready" means? Sorry, my first language isn't English.
