who am I

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on self, identity, determination, questions, and who am i

'And how, who am I?  I will remember, if I can!  I'm determined to do it!'  But being determined didn't help much...

A Quote by Deepak Chopra on who am i, question, questions, role, roles, and body

Who am I? is the only question worth asking and the only one never answered. It is your destiny to play an infinity of roles, but these roles are not yourself. The spirit is non-local, but it leaves behind a fingerprint, which we call a body. A wizard does not believe himself to be a local event dreaming of a larger world. A wizard is a world dreaming of local events.

A Quote by Babatunde Olatunji on who am i, beauty, peace, joy, mother earth, and divine

I am that I am, I am beauty, I am peace, I am joy, I am one with Mother Earth. I am one with everyone within the reach of my voice. In this togetherness, we ask the divine intelligence to eradicate all negatives from our hearts, from our minds and from our actions. And so be it....ashe.

A Quote by Ramana Maharshi on awareness, self, who am i, and maharshi

1. Who am I?

The gross body, which is composed of the seven humors (dhatus), I am not; the five cognitive sense organs, i.e., the senses of hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell, which apprehend their respective objects, i.e., sound, touch, color, taste, and odor, I am not; the five conative sense organs, i.e., the organs of speech, locomotion, grasping, excretion, and procreation, which have as their respective functions speaking, moving, grasping, excreting, and enjoying, I am not; the five vital airs, prana, etc., which perform respectively the five functions of in-breathing, etc., I am not; even the mind which thinks, I am not; the nescience too, which is endowed only with the residual impressions of objects, and in which there are no objects and no functions, I am not.

2. If I am none of these, then who am I?

After negating all of the above-mentioned as "not this, not this," that Awareness which alone remains - that I am.
