I am asking you. Who am I? In Truth, I am nobody. The real question is Who am I --> to YOU. Herein lies the most profound realization that will ever befall your mind.

I could be the sound of a cricket or barking dog while you are trying to sleep.
I could be the text that reappears in a different form on all of your posts.
I could be the silence in between each drop of rain as you listen o it fall.
I could be the voice in the back o your head that you try to ignore.
I could be the question that you are too afraid to ask.
I could be the answer that you are unwilling to hear.
I could be a figment of your imagination.
I could be the reality you think is unreal.
I could be the very essence of everything you despise.
I could be the true nature you keep trying to disguise.
I could go on.and on.and on.

But I'll stop.

When you realize who I am, then I won't have to bother you anymore.

    I posted a comment on another thread regarding Intersubjectivity Theory and I see it as applying to this question.

    "Intersubjective systems theory (IST, or intersubjectivity theory) proposes that minds are not isolated, unitary things that exist as individual entities, as though in a vacuum. Rather, minds exist within interpersonal and intersubjective relationships, beginning at birth (and even before) with the attachment bond to the mother, and they develop within interpersonal, intersubjective, relational contexts."

    Liz Pineal a professor at the University of Vermont writes about this in a similar way, breaking down the self into the subjective "I" and the objective "me". Our subjective view of ourself is often the dominate perceptive creating an imbalance with the objective side. This also presents a complexity to the self and other dynamic; the self (I) and other (me) can be internal, or the self (I/ me) can interact with an external "other".
    The human sense of belonging comes from the bonds of sharing similar subjective experiences.

    My question to you dustproduction

  • ewaweel Dec 27, 2010

    Hi to all,

    Reading this post I can understand that I am all of you because some parts of me could have written each and every words in these messages. This leads one to understand that the "I" does not really exist but is part of a infinity of possibilities like a cat not seen yet.

    But writing this very note, I also consciouly understand that I am one and that I now need to go to back home where a lovely cat is waiting for me.

    The perfect quote, from the movie Avatar: "I can see you".

  • AlexandriaG Dec 10, 2010

    You are consciousness becoming self-aware through a mirror reflection of infinite possibilities. You are the universe, and the universe is you.....all of existence.

    Who am I ? where have I come from?
    these are some of those questions that humans have been trying to answer for ages........

    Science has made advances in many fields but it fails to explain some very basic questions like these.......

    statements like 'Aham brahmasmi" found in ancient veadas have very strong meanings ....... it means I AM BRAHMAN .i.e,"I" does not refer to the individuality or outer nature, but to the essence of the Self which is ever identical to Brahman, the Supreme Being ....

    In the Hindu religion, Brahman is the eternal, unchanging, infinite, immanent, and transcendent reality which is the Divine Ground of all matter, energy, time, space, being, and everything beyond in this Universe.The nature of Brahman is described as transpersonal, personal and impersonal by different philosophical schools.

    Have a essay in my book "Silent Analogy" written by Rev. Bonnie Ann Burgard, published by Infinity at www.bbotw.com. Who are We, Where are we going & Why? You may want to read it, it pretty much sums it up rather quickly.

    Also check out my Mensa Space Exploration & Education group that I founded & am coordinator of at http//:tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/MSpaceExpSIG/ & join, if you care too.

    "I" is a word that does not exist

    We are infinite conciousness. We are all that is, was and ever shall be.

    Instead of saying "I am doing this". it is better to say "this is happening through me"

    Initial when I heard "Who am I" - I felt it was meaningless as my mind had answers - "I am So and so...born here, with this degree...."
    Later when I started investigating on it in my inner journey I was so surprised to realize how could we all deviate from our own inner truth.
    I somehow feel the moment we try to put in words "Who am I" the truth is lost...
    Everything we see thru our eyes (world of forms), listen thru our ears and feel is a manifestation of "I" but is never
    disturbed a bit by any changes to those....

    ...I again feel I failed to describe "Who am I"

    You are a figment of your imagination.
    You are an illusion.
    You are made up of star particles.
    You are offspring of the DIVINE.
    You are me.
    I am you.
    We are THEE.
    You are the essence of everything that LOVE is.
    Shine on bright light. I can see you.
