A is for Answers

As human beings we are looking for ANSWERS. How many times a day do you ask why? How come? More than you might think. It is reassuring to know why things happen or why someone would do such a thing. It fixes the thing in space and time.

We all share some universal questions like: Who am I? Where do we come from? Where are we going?

My preferred one is: Who am I?

The fun is to find an answer that is not fixed in space and time. I find it intriguing when people say with the utmost conviction “I am like THIS or that and I won’t change. Take me the way I am!”

Maybe I haven’t really found out how life works but I certainly hope that the way I am today will not be who I will be in 20 years. I don’t want to be fixed in time and I certainly don’t want to stay the timid, weird and naive teenage girl I was.

Of course, there are a few things I don’t want to “change” about myself. I want to stay a good person or be caring and passionate. But do I really care the same than 10 years ago, when I was still protecting myself in fear of being hurt? I’ve always been passionate but now I seem to be more light with it, there is less anger. Even that is not the same.

Staying with the question gives so much more freedom because I get to create who I am whenever I want. And I can change tomorrow or in an hour if it’s what I decide. Who I am is happening in the moment. In the next moment, there is a choice I get to make again and again.

So really, who needs answers?

With great respect!
