A person is but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard of NO more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
A walking shadow=Impermenance, No Fixed Self.
A poor player=No self direction, does not create or direct his role in life.
Struts and frets his life on stage=Life is full of limits.
Heard of no more=Death
A tale told by an idiot=Our language based life.
Full of sound and fury=Jumping up and down making noise but signifying Nothing.
So, did Shakespeare tell us the whole story?
Question–Who Am I?
Well, lets start with the body.
Your body can move, touch, see, taste, hear and smell.
What’s another aspect of you?
The aspect that thinks and feels. Words such as mind, heart and soul come to mind.
But these aspects are constantly changing, so I’m never exactly the same me that I was before!
So, who are you?
You are a physical body and a psychological being.
You have flaws and good points.
You are a social animal that likes to be with people but you are also unique!
What is your First Person Point of View?
Your life story, the life events that has brought you to this present moment.
What Do You See In The Mirror?
The face that stares back at me, is me, but it does NOT correspond to what I feel I am!
I was thrown into this world and my face resinates with sadness and hostility.
Do I really know this face in the mirror???
Who am I?
I am many things..
I am a congenial human being.
I am a worker.
I am a competitor.
I am an intimate being.
I am an actor.
Do you ever lose your sense of Self?
At times It seems I am in a dream world.
My body is functioning without my mind being in control!
I am tomorrow, what I establish today.
I am today, what I have established yesterday.
Are You Like A Book?
Yes, because we have life stories.
I am me because of my stories.
You are you because of your stories of life.
We all have similar selves BUT I’m a one of a kind story!!!
Who Am I?
The conclusion I come to is:
I am unique, but I am also like others!
SO THIS MEANS I CAN NEVER GIVE A DEFINITIVE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION!!!
