who am "I"? am "I" my memories? or, am "I" That which has memories? am "I" a body? or am "I" that which has a body? am "I" a mind? or that which has a mind? have "I", or you, ever changed? or, have your body and mind and memories changed? If "I" were dying and being reborn, anew, at every moment (that is to say, if "I" am ever-changing, like a body or mind or memories) could "I" even be aware that "I" had once been? would there be a continuity to memories, or a "flow", unless "I" didn't change? isn't this similar to a movie? there must be one who "watches" the still-frames, flickering fast enough to be perceived as motion. mustn't there be a one who is aware? and musn't that awareness remain unchanging, so as to conceive of a flow or continuity of experience? I am not the body or mind. I am AWARE of having both. the great thing about human consciousness is that you can be aware of That which is aware! namely your Self. is my cat aware that she's aware? most likely not. are planets aware that they are aware of other planets, and therefore, are they aware of themselves being aware of and attracted to other stellar bodies? or is there awareness occuring simultaneously with the attraction? that is not to say that they are not aware, just that they are just not self-aware. or, rather, aware of themselves as awareness. humans can be thus. to actualize self, through awareness of being aware and responding. see? what "i" am is ineffible, but it is surely there, or here, no doubt. it is merely, not what i had ASSUMED or BELIEVED it to be. we must look very deeply, within, to Know. do you follow?
