No really, who are you?
You are given a name at birth by your parents and the freedom to change your name when you are of legal age.
But what is in a name?
Is this who you truly are?
Am I Gavin because this is the name I was given at birth?
Who is Gavin?
Do I behave differently because of the name I was given?
I would say yes and no. Our perceptions differ because we respond to different calls.
I won't answer when someone calls me 'Joe' or 'Bob'. That is not my 'name.'
But are we really just the name?
Or are we something more, or less?
Who are you?
Why are you here?
What am I supposed to do?
These are things I ask myself on a typically daily basis.
I search for my Self every day, whenever I can.
While at work, while at home, while driving (maybe not the best idea, but I am an experienced driver ) I think.
I think of what I can be, what I'm supposed to be.
You can be whatever or whoever you want to, but it has to be your Self.
If you fake your Self and pretend to be someone else, your whole life is lived in vain.
No matter what decisions you make, make it your own.
Don't listen to me, your parents, your preacher, a book. Listen to your Self.
Ask your Self questions, and you will find the answers.
I am not a teacher, I am a student.
We are all students in life, and everyone is a teacher to someone else.
Perhaps you will be my teacher and I shall learn from you. We can all teach, if we share our incites.
I am this, I am that, I can be whatever I choose to be.
But that's it, a choice. You must choose.
That is what the search for Self is. Choosing who you want to be, where you want to go, and how you will get there.
The destination is all the same, and there is but one path, but that path can be walked in many ways.
I am who I am.
