Who am I and Why am I here?
Who am I? Why am I here? Throughout our lives we revisit these two questions time and time again. Until one day we do not. The day that we no longer frequent such inquiries is not the day when we go to sleep and do not wake again in this world, rather it is actually the day when we fully awaken and realize that these questions are no longer necessary. We incite that life is a series of perfect answers that can only be fully lived when we let go of the never-ending cycle of questions, because the one thing about questions, there is sure to be another.
The world is fueled by doubt, the lingering question after question, the slight haze of uncertainty that clouds our minds. You don’t have to look too far to see it, all marketing campaigns and advertisements are aimed at placing doubt, making us ask ourselves:
Perhaps this brand is better for me? Perhaps not?
Maybe Domino’s Pizza isn’t so bad for me after all? Or is it?
Perhaps I should go vegan? But what about uncontrollable GMO’s from the farm down the street from the all-organic, biodynamic farm from which I get my produce?
What if? What if? What if?
Yet, questions can help us awaken, for example with the fateful inquiry, “What if there is more?” But that same question, when overused, can also keep us paralyzed in fear, baited on a hook, and continuing to look for more rather than simply just BEING more. Where questions serve a purpose are within. Investigating the outside world is a moving target where the truth changes with each new scientific study that comes out, depending on who it will benefit more; while investigating the Inner Truth always reveals the same answer time and time again.
Our mere being is the question, how did I get here? Who am I? Why am I here? But living is the answer. Letting go of all questions is like being a child again and finding your toes for the first time and saying, “Oh cool! Look at these!!!! Let’s see what they can do!” It is living in wonderment and awe of the magic that is your presence in the world. There is no need to ask how you got here or why you are here? The truth is, you are here, so live it as best you can.
It is to be said that there is a time for deep inquiry. This post is merely to invite you to know when to move on from the questions and to start living as the magnificent answer. Don’t stay stagnant in the muddiness of doubt in the outer world, rather come within to the clarity of your existence and live from there. That small shift from outer sight to inner is the miracle. Namaste.
