Who are you? Are you, your mind, or your intellect, or your body, or your beliefs? Or are you all of them? Or are you something more? Our mind, memories, intellect, emotions, body, ego, and beliefs are ever-changing and never constant or absolute. But our consciousness is constant, this awareness that you are, you exist, without names or tags, a possibility of endless potential, unbound and without definition.
Are we not all the same, sure we have differences, but those differences make us more similar. We are all similarly different. We need to see our reflection in others. When there is no you and me, that is true consciousness.
