As the apostle James says, “Whoever listens to the word but does not put it into practice is like a man who looks in a mirror and sees himself as he is. No one knows his own identity when he tries to search within himself.
He takes a good look at himself and then goes away at once forgets what he looks like. Even the purpose in life, an answer could not be found if he does not have God as his foundation.
So, is it really possible to take something as complex and multifaceted as the soul and shrink it down to an idea we can grasp and understand? The answer is no, to have a true understanding of who we are could take a lifetime of reflection and then some, which is odd because who knows you better than you? Most people agree with Montaigne that they are the result of their life experiences, but humans have an imagination and free will that allows us to go far beyond what our experiences characterize. Today’s generation’s ability to prosper in personal growth is being stunted by its desire for these ever present status symbols.
If you can’t truly define who you are as person, it doesn’t mean that you should not tr... Instead of trying to promote a well-known clothing line or luxurious automobile, we should be trying to promote less materialism in the eyes of our younger generation.
I have often wondered what it is that makes me who I am. I am generally a positive person to be around and I try not to judge anyone for the choices that they make or the beliefs that they subscribe to.
I like to think that for the most part, I am a pretty easy person to get along with.
Some would start from simple things until they would come to the point thinking of complex things and everything becomes dubitable as Rene Descartes says in his universal Methodic Doubt.
Answering the simple question above is not that easy.
Still, there would come to a point that would make us feel that there is something “missing”. They are very supportive especially when we talk of our needs and studies.
Certainly, this “missing” could not be answered and recognized unless some instances like failures, sickness and death occurred to a person which could lead him to have a total transformation of oneself thereby making him able to answer the question. I asked myself the simple question for a couple of times wherein my answers varied, from simple to complex ones. I can see and feel that from the day we were born, they truly care and love I am a woman with diddling living with a purpose.
