3 Questions to Ask Yourself


What? What? What?

There are three questions you should be asking yourself every single day and they all start with What.

The first question:

What am I?
Not who am I. What am I.

Asking who you are is not the same as what you are. We all have the same two titles somehow and that is you are either a daughter or a son. Other titles include sister, father, aunt, uncle, cousin, mother, great grandfather…and not everyone will share those titles. However you will always share the titles of daughter or son. They are equal. One is female and the other is male.

Not much of a difference is there. That is still who you are and not what you are.

Who you are is the job you have, the clothes you wear and the things you do.

For me when I ask who am I, I am a female with a first and last name, I have a number that represents how many years I’ve been on the planet, I drive a Mercedes, own some property and use a Hewlett-Packard PC. I’m a film maker, a nutritionist, a counselor, a student, a writer, a publisher and I work for myself to earn a living.

These are some of the things I DO.

What I am is what happens when I strip away all my titles. In simple terms, have you ever read the book or seen the movie Fight Club? A famous line is “You’re not your fuckin’ khakis.” You are also not your debt and that is why they blow up the TWR buildings in the end so that everyone had a clean slate so to speak. For many being linked to an Experian or Equifax credit report somehow represents what people think they are.

What are you then?

You like everyone else started out as a Oneness and then you split. You took motion and replicated and are infinite.

Think of your body like it is a car. You get in it and you drive it. Some people take really good care of their vehicles and other crash and mangle them or never get tune ups or repairs then ask why the vehicle is not performing like it is supposed to. Some cars end up in a scrap heap while others continue along nicely until the owner decides to pick up another vehicle.

There is a comparison that I have found between Christianity and Hinduism. Jesus says to get this life right if not then you get to die. In Hinduism you are to get your life right to reach Nirvana (Heaven) and if you don’t you will continue to reincarnate until you do. Is the resurrection of Christ an example of eternal Nirvana if you live your life right?

Now getting back to the question to ask yourself: What am I?

The point is people think they are their religions and beliefs. They think they are what their career dictates or what others tell them they are to them.

Another mistake people make is thinking that others will make you complete. You are responsible for your own happiness and no one can make you happy per say. When you look to others to fulfill that which you think you are, you will be terribly disappointed.

You are a Oneness that split and continued to split and is now Infinite. If you can wrap your head around that then the question is simple. Ask yourself everyday What am I? as a reminder as to what you are. When you grasp that and intuition takes over ask yourself…

What do I know?
What do you know? You know the answer to the first question.

What else do you know? Ask yourself. You know you are One that split and continued to do so. What else do you know? Emotions are physical and physical is not what you are. You operate the machine and you can switch off emotions like a light.

What else do you know?

Here is an example and another movie by comparison (gotta love those late 90’s flicks) The Matrix.

What is the matrix? Picture the matrix as a sponge and you as water. This giant sponge tries to suck you up and you get stuck in all the little air pockets and notice…you are not a part of the sponge and you never will be. You will never be cohesive with the sponge. The sponge is just a holding cell if you allow it to be.

Until you know What You Are, and Know What you Know only then can you demand to be released or squeezed out of the sponge.

What is the sponge or the matrix? The matrix are your khakis. Simple.

Know that you can peel what you think you are apart just like an onion and when all the layers are gone what is left? Down to where the last piece of onion appeared to be. That’s right not the onion.

Know that you only give existence to certain things. “There is no spoon.” There is only a spoon if you say so.

Here is another example of knowing and trying to know: Philosophy Exam


Now that you know WHAT YOU ARE and WHAT YOU KNOW you can ask yourself…

What do I want?
What DO you want? What do you KNOW to get what you want? When I ask that question and when you do too, do you still want the things that you think define you? Do you still need an iPod or a Mac to define you? Music to let others (who don’t know what they are and could care less about you) know what defines you?

Once you answer the first two questions and they start to sink in and you know…you will see how silly all the wants you wanted or already have are no comparison for WHAT YOU ARE or WHAT YOU KNOW and what you REALLY want.

You will want more out of life. When you know certain things it is easier to obtain the things that you want in life. When you align yourself with WHAT YOU ARE and WHAT YOU KNOW…WHAT YOU WANT will be handed to you. All the benefits that come with WHAT YOU WANT will follow.

When you ask people what they want generally people will say something related to love (acceptance) and money (acceptance if you have some).

Let’s take money. What is money? You know what money is, it’s paper. The matrix of money is acceptance. There is a money reality and that is what money buys you, and you attach yourself to it and there is an actuality of what money is: that is how you use it.

Money is what value you give it. If you give it negative value you are left with debt. If you give it positive conotations and know that money branches out, just like you do and keeps spliting and splitting then you end up with unlimited resources (or money in this case).

If paper paper money disappears there will still be a monetary like system that will be endless.

When you answer the first two questions and are firm on them you will come to KNOW that money is not really what most people want.

Let’s take the Law of Attraction for example. Personally I don’t like the Law of Attraction and see it as pop-culture and a way to sell alot of spin off products which will be useless to most who purchase them.

If you look at the Law of Attraction and start doing more research and not take it at face value, you will see thare are other alternatives like say the Law of Sucess or the Law of Love.

Here is where the Law of Attraction goes astray for me. If you are a negative person you will always attract what you don’t want. You can grin and bear it and deep down inside you will always get what you think you are. Negativity. When you make the concious change to be grateful yes you will start to attract some positives in your life. If that optimism is only on the surface and you haven’t dealth with other issues what do you think your going to attract? More of the same.

So the Law of Success is far more attractive and uses the same principals yet has a different outcome. What do you get with the Law of Attraction? What you sow? What do you get with the Law of Sucess? If you work at it and pay attention you will get what sucess means to you and no body else.

You give existence, like the students who acknowledged the chair to what you want or don’t want in life.

Sucess seems so much more pleasant than just attracting what you’ve already got!

Unless it’s sucess of course…

Which of the three WHATS do you find the hardest or easiest and why?

  1. Good post. I be taught something tougher on completely different blogs everyday. It should at all times be stainlmtiug to learn content material from other writers and practice a little bit one thing from their store. I’d favor to make use of some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. because of true grit,team spirit and HUGE BALLS.’…LOL…another Mourinho stooge….team spirit?what the heck is this when Drogba everyday makes exit noises….true grit,same which Mourinho’s cement sacks showed against Middlesborough…its not called team grit, its called wilting under pressure….HUGE BALLS,yeah surely Drogba must be having them after 3 seasons of oralxxx with Mourinho….

  3. Pretty section of content. I just stumbled upon your weblog and in accession capital to assert that I acquire actually enjoyed account your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing to your augment and even I achievement you access consistently quickly.

  4. naturally like your website however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will definitely come back again.

  5. I am not sure how I feel about this. I assume that this applies to insured individuals, but I know that during a time when I was unemployed and my son had to see the doctor that I didn’t see any adjustments on the bill. The facility did create a payment plan so I wasn’t buried by the one time payment, but they certainly didn’t discount the bill. Would a person like me, in that sort of situation, be able to sue for the full amount?

  6. Szia!Zugolvasója vagyok a blogodnak, és nagyon tetszik. A blog is és az is, hogy a lányodnak milyen finom és egészséges ételeket csomagolsz :)Két kérdésem van:milyen lesz ez a rántott hús kiolvasztva? Még sose mertem lefagyasztani, féltem, hogy nem lesz jó…A másik pedig, hogy milyen magasak ezek a dobozok? Könnyű Å‘ket lecsukni? Köszönöm,Zsuzska

  7. Спасибо “читатель, не имеющий отношения к школе №92″!А что касается таких учеников, как “ученик этой школы по сей день”, то Вы просто не достойны называться учеником этой школы. И надо же, все должны перед Вами отчитаться: и директор школы, и youarenotalone (имя, отчество вам тот час подай)…А вы сами простите кто??

  8. C’est bien vrai!! dis t’elle alors qu’elle n’en a pas dans son placard. J’ avais un diesel gris du temps jadis mais il nous a quitté éventré par une chute sur un trottoir depuis je ne l’ai jamais remplacé. Trop sentimentale la fille! mais je compte bien réparé ce manque d’ici peu… Tes sandales n’ont jamais été aussi bien assorties qu’avec ton jeans gris! C’est un nouveau bracelet? il me dit rien celui-ci?

  9. Superb blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Cheers!

  10. · Jeannette – I’m glad I finished dinner before you gave me that visual…or dinner may have been..interesting.Headless chickens. In the yard.And here I thought the matching outfits my mom made for my brother, sister and I to wear to church was torture.It doesn’t top headless chickens in the yard.

  11. Hey there! It looks as though we both have a interest for the same thing. Your blog, “Werden Sie Gast, in unserem Beeznees Business TV !! | Beeznees” and mine are very similar. Have you ever thought of authoring a guest article for a similar website? It is sure to help gain exposure to your website (my website recieves a lot of traffic). If you are interested, email me at: . Thanks for your time

  12. "as the economy gets more valuable, we would expect natural disasters to cause larger economic losses even after adjusting for inflation" – yes, BUT the counter-trend is much better weather forecasting (i.e. avoided economic losses). Thus graph showing losses in developed (better forecasting) vs. developing (worse forecasting) would be maybe more telling…?

  13. i don’t think soccer associations are going to cut the mustard.my prediction is israel will keep massively screwing up and with each action they take their reputation will sink further into the mire. civil society will instinctively cringe and back away and eventually more and more governments will too.

  14. Die Aussage 12 km Fußweg stimmt schlicht und ergreifend nicht. Ich habe nachgefragt. Der längste Fußweg beträgt 3 km und das sollte zu bewältigen sein.Was ich allerdings auch dramatisch finde, ist die eher mäßige Kommunikation. Da ist eindeutig Nachbesserungsbedarf. Eine solche, definitiv falsche Aussage gehört nicht veröffentlicht.

  15. I have been browsing on-line more than three hours as of late, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

  16. I believe this is the first post that I read here and I then I started reading more and more. I usually don’t like these kinds of blogs b/c I feel they are too unrealistic and written by successful people telling me that “they know what I am going through.” ANYWAY, your blog is different b/c it looks real. It doesn’t promisse me anything, but it tells me that is light at the end of the tunnel if I’m almost 24 and only had internships and no “real” jobs…Thanks =)

  17. perfecto quedoal cien y con las claves que diste me aparece como original x cierto brinque de starter a ultimate y sin broncas ahora solo tengoque subir mi ram para evitar lagueos buen aporte menResponder

  18. One other thing- Drinking has destroyed more careers in baseball while being socially acceptable, and in some cases, part of team bonding. Baseball history is littered with personal wreckage that has been glorified and embedded into the sport’s lore. The Babe, Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin, Boggs and the 78 beer cross-country flight…. plus many, many, ugly drinking related episodes. Smoking weed, if done in moderation is almost benign compared to the damage heavy drinking can do. Just saying….

  19. В коридоре, кстати, ЛН всё время перегорает. Периодичность — раз в месяц. Благо, что замена её — прерогатива ЖКХ. Для них, возможно, так выгодней — посылать человечка на замену лампы. Так вроде и персонал занят, и работу-заботу свою показать.

  20. I’m so sick of these promotions. The last one I missed out on getting my animals because everytime I clicked on “ask friends” nothing happened. I was close to finishing the bull but instead of giving it to me they gave me another animal I already had. They never give enough time to finish these promotions unless you buy everything to get finished quickly. It’s just another money grab.

  21. 博士也領食物券 美高學歷3萬人難糊口【台灣醒報╱記者莊瑞萌╱台北報導】2012.05.08 受到不景氣影響,美國擁博士學位者領取食物券補助的人數再創新高,來到3萬多人,統計從2007年到2010年之間,領取相關政府補助的博士人數更成長了三倍。另外,農業部公布的資料也指出,截至今年二月份全美領取食物券補助的人數已超過4,600萬人,相較之下高學歷占其比例雖然不高,但已顛覆過去對高學歷等於高薪的傳統印象。根據美國城市研究所(Urban Institute)統計結果發現,美國擁有博士學位者,領取食物券不僅突破三萬人,碩士學歷者利用食物券或其他政府補助度日的人數也來到29萬人,顯示美國民眾在經濟條件不佳下,連基本餬口都成問題。另外,根據農業部統計,截至今年二月,全美領取食物券的人數也已超過4630萬人,相較過去三年,成長率達到43%。研究人員尼可拉斯表示,「每個人總以為擁有博士學歷就保證擁有高薪,但過去一年來,我常有耳聞,有些沒有任期保障的教授年薪不到二萬美金,這根本不足以養家活口。」一名前大學教授、目前自行開設顧問公司的凱爾絲基表示,「未來的人數恐怕還會繼續增加,這對當事人來說,是相當令人難堪的。」2007å¹´,擁有博士學位領取美國政府補助的人數為9776人,2010年時,人數增加三倍成為三萬三千多人,碩士學位者也從十萬多人,一下子增加到29萬多人,另外,美國勞動統計局的資料也指出,目前全美有5057位擁有博士學歷的人擔任工友的職務。◆ 年輕人失業惡化 抗議頻率恐增中央社 2012.05.08 在南非舉行的「年輕人就業研討會」最新報告指出,年輕人不被聘用的機率幾乎是成年人的3倍,如果情況不改善,年輕人走上街頭抗議的頻率將愈來愈高。南非新聞網站「時報即時消息」(Times LIVE)今天報導,這項研討會是由南非關懷青年組織「國家青年發展機構」(National Youth Development Agency)昨天於約翰尼斯堡舉行。會議報告指出,目前世界上有1å„„2500萬名年輕人,每天生活在花費不到1.25美元的貧窮線下,讓他們覺得人生黯淡無光。以全球2億失業人口而言,其中7500萬名是年輕人,失業的原因主要是失學、無一技在身、對於找工作意興闌珊。報告指出,2007年至2010å¹´é–“,年輕失業人口增加510萬人。同一時間,世界有80個國家的年輕人因失業而走上街頭示威抗議,次數超過1000次。在南非,70%失業者的年齡介於15至34æ­²。他們容易被不法人士利用,成為社會不定時炸彈。「國際勞工組織」( International LabourOrganization,ILO)設於「非南開發共同體」(Southern African Development Community,SADC) 的辦公室主任范伏倫 (Vic van Vuuren)表示:「解決南非年輕人失業現狀,可分為短期與長期計畫」。范伏倫說:「前者是必須為年輕人創造就業機會,後者則是改善整體經濟環境、訓練年輕人技能、普遍就學」。范伏倫語重心長地說:「當然,配套措施是,同時要解決如何讓初出社會的年輕人獲得實習機會,與實際工作經驗,也非常重要」。
