In Search of Yourself

The question, "Who Am I?" has been one of the most important questions in human history.

Please reflect on who you are - either by referring to philosophical, psychological, sociological, anthropological, spiritual, and/or cultural theories - or by sharing your personal inner explorations.

Feel also free to play with personality tests of various kinds and see if they help you understand yourself better.

  1. My Soul

    My soul is not found in the depths of a forest,
    Nor in the abyss of an ocean.
    It is not found on top of the tallest mountain,
    Nor on the stretches of the greatest desert.
    If I searched through every market in the world,
    My efforts would be pointless, as I would not find it.
    My soul lies dormant in my body like a solitary flame in a kiln.
    Every time I laugh, smile or love, it flickers.
    Every time I cry, frown or hate, it flickers.
    Wavering, glimmer ever so slightly of who I am.
    I remember to keep my feelings dear.
    I remember to express them in my own way.
    Because when I cease to feel, to care,
    I cease to be me.
