The Person You Used to Be

Who are you?

When we try to answer that question, we use language, based on thoughts, which are either in the past or about the past or both.

We talk about what we do or where we live or who our partner is and what our family looks like. But those are just thoughts and concepts that we have constructed about various patterns in our conditioned lives. What we say about our life is not our life. When someone tries to answer the question "who are you," just about everyone comes back with a story about who they were, even if that "were" is only five minutes ago. And most of the time, that kind of story suits us just fine.

"When you asked the question, I think I was someone who wanted to start a business."

But who are you right now?

Find that, even if you can't express it.
