It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

Who Are You?


I am the cook, housekeeper and mother of the nations.
Who am I?
I am Eve, a formation of God’s last creation,
wife to Adam and best known for eating from the Tree of Knowledge.
But still I am more…

I am Woman


Besides, I don't think Adam and Doris has the right ring to it" Posted by Hello

If someone asked you who you are, what would you say?

Maybe you'd say that you're the light of your parents’ lives, a pesky baby sister, a wonderful lover, stay-at-home mom, a wife, a career woman, a bitchy boss, a Sunday school teacher, a single parent, a great friend... yada... yada..

But what happens when those labels are removed?

Can you answer the question, "Who are you?" without giving yourself a label?

I'm a person who dedicated his life giving a hand and guiding other people find out who they are in life.

Who you are?
You are greater than who you think you are. There is a God dwelling within each.

The seemingly unconscious portions of your body draw energy from universal food and molecules, from the air to form your body. The inner portions of your being operate SPONTANEOUSLY, JOYFULLY AND FREELY.

The YOU that you consider yourself to be are NEVER annihilated. Your consciousness is NOT snuffed out, nor is it swallowed. You are expanding your psychic structure and becoming what your soul is.
Interactions with others do occur, yet none occur what you do not attract or draw to you by your THOUGHTS, FEELINGS, ATTITUDES or EMOTIONS. This applies both before, during and after physical life. Miraculously, you are given the GIFT of creating your own experiences.

In this physical existence you are learning how to handle the inexhaustible energy that is available to you. Some of your feelings and thoughts are translated into OBJECTS in a medium you call space. Others are translated into EVENTS in a medium you call time. Space and time concepts (exist in physical realm) are illusions.

kamigoroshi & mwt,

In my own quieter moments, "Who Are You?" is a question that constantly begs to be answered. My answer each time is different. I feel they're little fragments and pieces that will become whole in due course.

For me, this one by Annie Dillard resonates most of the time:

""I am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world, and I am getting along. I am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. I am not washed and beautiful, in control of a shining world in which everything fits, but instead am wandering awed about on a splintered wreck I've come to care for, whose gnawed trees breath delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions, and whose beauty beats and shines not in its imperfections, but overwhelmingly in spite of them..."

What do you seek, O Pilgrim on the Path?
“Liberation from pain and freedom from all suffering.”

The answer to thy quest is already in thy heart.
Listen, O Pilgrim, to the whispering of thy Soul . . .
“Know thyself . . . for in thyself is found ALL there is to be known.”

— from the Records of Wisdom


In everyone of us there is a natural potential for harmony, perfection, beauty, complete health and dominion. This potential is not found in our body of flesh and bones, nor in our intellect. It is found in the energies that pattern and sustain our dense form, in the powers that we naturally have to direct these energies, and in our acknowledgment of our relation with the Source of these energies — our Soul and Self.

Knowledge of the energies that pattern and sustain our human form and of the relation of these energies to those inherent powers that we all have — the POWERS of THOUGHT, FEELING, and ACTION — opens the way for balancing, harmonizing and healing the totality of our being.


Knowledge of oneself opens the way for inner peace, harmony and dominion — the dominion of our inherent divinity and power to ever BE more.

As MWT has already written,"..There is a God dwelling within each."(she cited from the Seth of th late Jane Roberts).

I might add, "Not an anthropomorphic One commonly accepted and envisaged. That is so untenably limiting and a cause for much human dissension which will not end from any constrictive Concept about Reality.

Concepts must Evolve as Man must evolve. I doubt pesonal salvation is for the mentally lazy or the parochially intolerant.
