Who Am I?
Truth is my name, truth is my identity. I AM.
What does that mean?
Sometimes it means everything.
Sometimes it can explain anything.
Sometimes it requires further inquiry.
Who AM I? What is my IDENTITY?
Am I a Writer, Yogi, Director, Teacher, Mentor?
Yes. And no.
These are all things that I am passionate about doing, what I feel drawn to do and are ways I can be of service, yet I cannot define who I am by any title, job, or passion. Why?
Because it can all go away at any moment. Things change. People change. We change. If we don’t know who we are without these titles, we open ourselves up to what one may call an identity crisis.
As we live our day to day lives, blending in with all that is around us, contemplate the following:
I am no one and I am everyone.
I am strong and special. I am weak and indistinctive.
I am everything and I am nothing.
I am empty and open.
I am a vehicle for experiencing, learning, growing. For compassion.
I am complete stillness. Shuniya.
This is the state we try to reach through Kundalini Yoga. Here, there is no wanting or desiring. No past and no future. No associations or attachments.
Here you heal. Here you flow. Here you prosper and give, effortlessly.
In a state of Shuniya there is no question of who AM I? You just are. Neutral. Still. This is the most beautiful definition of them all. The only definition.
