I’ve been obsessed with the idea to “know” who I am.
Few days ago, I even called my mum to ask her: who am I?
She said: “The thing is Pam, you left home 11 years ago, I don’t live with you anymore, I’m sorry but I don’t know how to answer that”.
I couldn’t agree more with her.
I have changed a lot since I left home 11 years ago.
But in my mind a mum should know her child and have all the answers.
I guess this is not true.
Anyway... Her “knowing” who I am would be just her thoughts about me.
Then, a coach shared her thoughts about a book she just read, from Eckhart Tolle.
That hit me in the gut!
Here it is: “who you are is impossible to ‘know’. Because things we know become thoughts... and we’re not thoughts, we’re spirit. Eckhart calls this Being or consciousness”
So, after my failed attempt to get the answer I realised that I just need to BE who I am, even if I don’t know the exact answer to that.
I give up trying to “know” who I am, and I’m just going to BE!
The pressure is off!
