What is the most important question that you can ask? Throughout history people have been asking the question ‘Who am I?’ Although it is the most profound and essential question it’s often answered in a very shallow way. The answers usually begin with references to the physical body, such as where it was born, what color or race it is, and what type of genitalia it possess. Then the next step is what roles you play, such as student, mother, grandmother, etc. When you meet new people rarely do they ask who you are. Instead they commonly ask what you do. Now the focus is on your profession or job and then may move into your hobbies or interests.
What happens when you ask yourself that question over and over again, moving beyond all these physical designations and activities? Try asking yourself the question 50 times without repeating an answer and going deeper and deeper each time. For most people this is a tremendous challenge, yet it is an awesome way to discover who you truly are on the deepest and most profound level. It’s an effective way to connect with your eternal, unlimited essence.
