     The answer I have questioned somewhat deeply is: "I am me." I have come to notice that I am what I think; and all that exists arises with my thoughts, and that with my thoughts I make the world. When I have no thoughts I am nothing. When I am nothing I am not me but rather I am everyone and everything. As Gandhi said: "My life is my message. The purity of the means determines the purity of the end. A "no" merely uttered from the deepest conviction is better and greater than YES merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble. You must be the change you want to see in the world." I still have a long way to go to achieve what I have said above I am moving in that direction. I have come to realize that nothing is absolutely true or absolutely false. I have also come to know that I do not know. These are words. Words are often preached. As Gandhi said: an ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.  I have come to believe that when I am kind I am liberated, Warm and kind regards to everyone.

     I am thankful, you are you!  Continue to seek and you shall find . . . Keep knocking and soon the door shall be opened . . . Ask, and in time you shall receive the understanding/wisdom you seek.  God reveals Himself so differently to each of us, I have found.  You and God alone . . . Are the best authority on matters related to YOU!  love and light the way.   Again, thankful for you!
