I Have A Body, But I Am Not My Body

You have feelings, but you are not your feelings.
You have thoughts, but you are not your thoughts.

 Stephen Aronson

This talk directly examines the question of “What AM I?”

Perennial Wisdom challenges our identification with the body, feelings, and thoughts. It urges us to question our identity and reflect within. Our body, though crucial, doesn’t define us – as demonstrated by those with disabilities.

We possess an awareness that extends beyond sensory experiences and encompasses thoughts, emotions, and memories.

While we cannot control our thoughts or our moods, we are the observing awareness that is influenced by them.

Clearing the mind and attempting to not think of something reveals the limitations of our control.

Embracing the possibility of a higher conscious potential can transform our understanding of ourselves and our experience of life.
