The Most Important Question.

Who am I? 

I have many titles-

wife, mom, sister, daughter, friend, yogi, healer, teacher, student, spiritual director, God mother

I have had these titles-

single, married, divorced, hairdresser, rocker, wild teenager, 20 year old, 30 year old, 40 year old

I’m about to get a few more titles-

50 year old, minister and some day I will be known as grandmother

Who am I? It seems to be always changing.

Sometimes we can think we are these titles and make this our identity. But truly these are just roles we are playing in the drama of life. 

So who am I? 

There’s a saying that helps answer this question, “you are a spiritual being having a human experience.” When I remember this, I connect to who I AM. The Godfather of yoga, B.K.S. Iyengar says, “you do not have a soul, you have a body, you are a soul.” 

The days will have more light now, lets remember the Divine spark of Light of who you are.

I will end with a beautiful quote from Deepak Chopra, “Your only identity is I AM undefined and infinite. Any label you give yourself limits yourself.”
