Video: “I Don’t Wanna Look the Fool!”

Who Am I?

WHO AM I? - An Introduction...

There is a "spiritual self-inquiry" that requires you to ask yourself, "Who am I?". It encourages a deep exploration into ego, personality, and any and other manifestations of Thought.


So I decided to record a series of personal, open and honest videos that explore my so-called 'personality' by way of looking at qualities, behaviours and traits that I seem to identify with (chosen at random as I shot the video).

Why? To get curious. To get curious about Who I Am - by looking at who I am not. That's why. It's all explained here, together with a menu of all the other 'who am I?' videos I recorded.

VIDEO #02: I don’t like looking foolish (being laughed at, being made a fool of)

Chances are you’re the same as me, in this regard.

You don’t like looking a fool, either.

  • Whether it be ‘falling flat on your face’ in front of everyone – metaphorically, or otherwise
  • Whether it be someone else pointing out your ‘foolishness’ (a misunderstanding, lack of social graces, bad body odour, etc.)
  • Whether it be telling a joke and nobody laughs

Chances are you kinda don’t like it when this happens.

But, I do know there are those that are simply able to laugh at themselves when they’ve become the fool. There are those that do everything to experience this form of learning (or meeting their limitations). There are those that just don’t call it ‘looking foolish’, they don’t call it anything.

And maybe we all don’t like looking the fool, and we all area able to shrug it off too.

Nothing to see hear, then, nothing to identify with. Just life, doing its ‘immaculate learning’ thing. And today just happens to be your turn to ‘play’ the fool…

"What I most want is to spring out of this personality, then to sit apart from that leaping. I’ve lived too long where I can be reached." – Rumi


Serious question: if you don't know who you are - and really you don't! - then how on earth can you know that you are happy or unhappy?
