    Who are you?

    This question arrived to me with listening to the song 'Who are You' by The Who.

    I am.   That much I do know.  The "I am" that I am was able to look out at the world seemingly outside of himself as an infant and is still able to do this at seventy-nine.  This, despite every molecule in his (deliberate third person usage) body having disappearing and replenishing themselves all of that time.   I suspect I am the life in that body.

    I know I am not my name.  It's a label.  I know I'm not my body, though I inhabit one in some way.  I know I am not my thoughts.   When I stop to listen to them - without identifying and losing myself within them - they stop. 

    Close as I can get, to is that put by Roberto Assagioli MD.   I am a centre of consciousness with a will.   My sensations, emotions and feelings, impulses and desires, imagination, thought and even intuition are 'of me' but NOT the essential me.   They as aspects of my being.

    So to sound sacreligious in the Christian sense:  I am.   I am that which cannot be quite captured by any verbal thought or mathematical formulae.

    Who are you?

    I am a free spirit who does not like to be chained by the dogmatic traditions that society tries imposing on me.

    I am KT/Brenda. I am a servant of the most high God , I serve in sharing bible truths to release false beliefs and doctrines from the word of God. I am and will always be a student of the word of God , My purpose is to help people see truth and to know that this life is not all there is to offer , as written , Jesus died for our entrance to live under his organized Government Now that we have tasted the Government and power of satan. Which is fast approaching it's conclusion.  We will also taste Jesus version of a Government that will bring peace and true happiness and good health.and return of our loved ones to live again under his rulership  or Government
    Notice New World Translation
    Daniel2:44“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. And this kingdom will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it alone will stand forever,

    No Government passed down to people to rule over other people.

    Because Jesus will be in charge under his Father's leadership Jehovah.

    The question is are we ready for a wonderful future ahead.
    do we want to be citizens of a New earth as written at 2Pe 3:13 But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.

    We all we give an answer rather it is yes or no .
    life will continue.

    I am many things and many entities. I like to claim myself a writer:) I am homemaker, lover and loved. I am lost most days, and others I am found. I am adventurous, I am philosopher, I am a citizen of this nation. I am grateful, I have been sorrowful. I am hopeful for my future and belligerent of my past. I am many things good, some not so good. Mostly, I'm just me and nobody else. I just hope I am who I'm supposed to be and the best that I can be.

    'I really wanna know', is another line in the song after, 'Oon-ooh, ooh-ooh!'
    Got the album myself, Tim. Thing is, why d'you wanna know? Who put you onto me - who fingered me?
    Seriously, I don't take that much time to think about who i am. Sorry, that card's at the bottom of the 'In' tray.
    Ask a question like 'What do you do?' and I can reel off a pageful.
    'Where are you going?' might get a shorter answer, until my royalties start to roll in. What with a blood-sucking tax man who thinks I've fiddled him, and all the other usual bills, travel's off for a while.
    That's who I am - or rather what I am, preoccupied. Writing books, answering e-mails, shopping - her indoors doesn't drive, so I do the heavy stuff - and seeing to jobs she can't do (although that role seems to be on the wane as well these days).
    Enough? Well it's writing time again, ta-ta.

    I am a" WEED "...I am a survivor of LIFE and it's quirks...dysfunction, abuse, prejudice, and all other indiscretions/aspects of life. I use the metaphor "WEEDS" to signify all survivors, because no matter means befall us we come back even stronger,
    "Weeds" do not need water/sunlight/fertilizer, they will return after a winter sleep, as they refuse to DIE...  pampering, is unnecessary  if there is no soil, they will grow in a crack in the sidewalk, reaching up to the sky  standing tall and proud.. unlike a Hybrid Flower, which has needs/demands  and without them they will die....
    The "WEEDS" on the other hand are the first thing you see along the highways, letting you know Spring is here !!!  this is what I choose to be...weedbychoice...hear my voice !!!
    thanks for asking...

      Don't put yourself down. There are those who'll do it for you free. In the outside world keep your chin up and stride on regardless - if you do look down, don't forget to pick up the lost coins while your eyes are down, one day it might be a 'biggie'

      This is quite refreshing. I like it. If I had it together I would go out and pull some grass this morning to make room for my weeds. This reminds me to see the beauty in all things. Thank you

    I am a very complicated woman, who loves deeply, thinks deeply and feels deeply.  I love to offer a smile for everyone because I believe that even a simple smile can brighten the day for almost anyone, plus just acknowledging another human with a smile goes a long way.  I possess great intuitive abilities, as most women do, in seeing through to what is really what in this life, as well as the motives of others.  I seem to know instantly when a child is hurting or not happy and my heart aches terribly for them.  I am one who attempts to see the good in everyone, but I am also a realist and intuitively know when another is not who they appear to others to be.  I hope that all know the love of the Lord in their lives, as for me He is the only one who can satisfy that empty hole in all of us.  I try to be mindful to extend grace and show mercy to others, as I have been on the receiving end of grace and mercy and it is a wonderful blessings.  There is a lot more to the story, but that's it for now.  Thank you for posing this wonderful question.
