“Who are you and what do you want? These are the defining questions of this age.”
These are the important questions we answer in life through the choices we make. It’s not about who we say we are or what we say we believe. It’s about how we choose to act in the face of suffering.
- Do we separate ourselves from others?
- Do we provide reasons why others suffer?
- Do we justify our good fortune?
So, what do the answers say about you? How are you answering these questions in your mind? Do your thoughts and intentions answer these questions or is it your actions toward others (strangers, those in need, the ill, the homeless, the poor) that define you?
There is a third question that is just as important.
- Why is there a difference between how you think of yourself and the actions you take each day?
What are you going to do to become the best version of yourself?
- Who are you?
- What do you want?
