Who Are You?

I once heard a story about a philosophy professor who gave a test to his students.  The only question on the test was; “Who Are You?”  The students had thirty minutes to complete their essay.  They were told not to begin until the professor had given his full instructions.  Initially, the Students began to think through the normal biographical information.   The professor then gave instructions that none of the usual terms could be used.  In other words each student was instructed to write a essay about “Who Are You” without using age, gender, birthplace, family, likes, dislikes, talents, ethnicity or name.  They were further instructed that the test would count for the majority of their grade and  failure to to complete the test would result in a failing grade.

Now, I’d like to ask the same of you:  “Who Are You?”  Your answer may not contain age, gender, birthplace, family, likes, dislikes, talents, ethnicity, or name.  The question generates some deep contemplation.  Share with us your answers and I will share your answers with all of you.

For now, Earlynn’s Just Waitin’ to hear from YOU.

    That is a very good question and very difficult to answer when we identify ourselves by race, religion, job ect… but that is not who we are. I guess my answer would be that I am a spiritual being full of light and love who is on a Spiritual journey to learn new and evolving ways in this lifetime.
