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 #Xtra 1: I like doing things ‘right’ (I’m a perfectionist).
Hah, there would be many, many folks that know me that would think I am the last person on earth who’d be a perfectionist.
- I’m scruffy.
- My car is old and dented.
- My clothes all have holes in them (and not expensive ‘designer holes’).
I even have an expression for all of this, I call it “Nashed” – when I buy something, it usually quickly gets damaged or “Nashed”, and I like that. 🙂
Still. I’m recording this series of “Who Am I” videos, and I’m not liking how they’re going, or what I’m managing to share, and suddenly…
- OMG, I’m a bloomin’ perfectionist type too!
(Hence this ‘extra’ video recording – this trait did not make it to my initial list of #33!)
I like that actually, because it becomes more and more plain to see to me, that the planet is ‘awash’ with (human) energies. Energies like anger, frustration, joy, confusion and even perfectionism. And everyone gets to try on some or all of these energies for size.
Then some of us take a fancy for a particular form of energy, start to hold onto it, start to identify with it.
Nevertheless, these energies ARE impersonal.
They are not who you are.
And I say all of this up above, because – imperfectly as ever – I failed to say it in the video below (boom boom!)…
