Video: “I Don’t Like ‘Pretending'”

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 #08: I don’t like bullshitting or pretending (I prefer straightforward, honest, unpretentious)

Ahh, ‘winging it’! Something I’ve told myself I’m just not that good at.

  • Despite recording 100s of videos where I didn’t really know what I was going to say until I said it (see below, for one such example).
  • Despite writing 100s of blog posts and web pages, where the words seem to write themselves
  • Despite being a living embodied momemt-by-moment example of ‘winging it’ (as you are).

But, still. I don’t like winging it’. I don’t like pretending. I don’t like bull-shitting.

(And – maybe here’s the rub – I don’t like it when others do that, too, especially when they look like they’re ‘better’ at it, than  me!)

"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?
