“Who am I really?”

“The physical man I am today is not the man I once was. But deep within me there is a something that is always sameness.” -Tadayoshi Inoue

I am always reflecting and trying to learn more about myself. Not just the ego self but what lies beyond the ego. Who is the me that is not the story I tell about myself. You can call it what you like but I like source. Who or what is this source of me?

I know I have been searching for possible answers my whole life. And at times I might have told you that I knew. I am not sure if I will ever really know until my body is dust. But I know is more than what I live in this body, more than what my mind can probably conceive. 

Why do I care? I don’t know fully. I do know that I have always cared. For me I care. I care that I am living in this life a life that is worthy of me. So far it often feels like I fail at living up to an enlightened perspective. I catch glimpses of what I think I should be, but I don’t even know what that might be.

So I just press on with my own inner work. I keep talking to others and doing the stuff of investigation and curiosity. I know it feels like I should love more and I know it feels like when I am in the service of others I feel connected in deeper ways. And that feels purposeful. 

I may never really answer my questions in this life. But I will try to ask better questions and I will try to be as honest with myself as I possibly can. 

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
