Who am I? What am I?



   Q. Who am I?  What am I?  What am I made of?  What kind of 
       person am I?  How do I find out what I am?  What kind of 
       questions do I ask myself to find out what I am? 

   A. To find out what you are ask yourself where you are most 
       comfortable, where you are most at ease.  Ask: "Around what 
       kind of people am I most comfortable and most at ease?  In 
       what kind of atmosphere am I most  comfortable?  Am I more 
       comfortable around deceitful and dishonest people or around 
       honest people, around indecent and obscene people or around 
       decent people, around the "swinger" or around the straight 
       person?  Am I happier and more comfortable in a church or 
       in a night club, at a picnic or at a topless Go Go, working 
       around the house or out in a bar?  What kind of music do I 
       like?  Classical music or jazz?  Quiet, reflective music or 
       Rock music?  Church music or popular music? 

      It is important to know who you are and what you are.  
       Socrates said "Know yourself".  It has been said "Be 
       yourself" and Shakespeare said "This above all. To thine 
       own self be true."  To be true to yourself you must know 
       who you are and what you are.  Your must know yourself.  
       Otherwise you may get caught up in that greatest of all 
       foolishness ---trying to be what you are not.  You may find 
       yourself trying to find happiness in the company of the 
       Dishonest, the Indecent and the Irreverent when you are 
       really only happy in the company of the Honest, the Decent 
       and the Religious.  You may find yourself trying to find 
       happiness in the atmosphere of a night club when it is 
       really the quiet, meditative atmosphere of a church that 
       suits your disposition and spirit.  Don't do that which is 
       in conflict with your basic nature and spirit.  Not if you 
       wish to be happy.  Know yourself and be true to yourself.  
       Be true to the highest that lies within you.
