Do I Really Know...

Do I really know who I am? Sometimes I hear from people I interact with something that makes me wonder. I like who I think I am and I like what I hear they think I am. Still, those aren't exactly the same am that I am, or maybe. The mirror imperfectly reflects the image. We have a few mirrors and multiple layers in our lens.

You are who I think you are, regardless of who you think you are. It is all relative, experiential, dynamic, momentary, sporadic; we are as we perceive ourselves and are perceived by others, seen through a mirror, darkly, richly, and nuanced.

Sometimes we are too close to the source to have perspective on ourselves, which is not unlike the difference between standing in the center of a valley, and standing on a mountain top looking into the valley: you can see the mountains around you, but you cannot see the tree just around the corner.

I am an expression of the universal consciousness. I am a song in the vibration of the strings. I am the reflection of you as seen in my eyes.

I usually like what other people tell me about myself.

I like you the way you are.

The way I am? Hmm? in an inconstant universe some fundemental aspect maybe constant?

Nature vs. Environment - some things remain constant. You're still smart and nice. Words sound somewhat corny describing all the details.

Hmm. Well, you've never failed to impress me with your answers to just about anything. It's more than just Google.

Even that source doesn't truly stand the test. It all leads back to a Google link.

Being earnest - is it constant? You have a nice sense of humor too.

It is the exploring. Which is what I was doing. Still am. Will always be.

What? We aren't what we think we are?

Different rose colored glasses for everyone, including yourself.

You are what I think you are?
You are a part of the universal conciousness?
You are god?
You are a duffer?
You are...?

I don't think you have enough money, unless you've had a sex change. My bitches only like to lick the bush.
