Who are you?

by | Aug 22, 2022 | Principal's Desk

In 1978, the British rock band The Who released a song called, “Who Are You?” The lyrics of the song include “Who are you, I really want to know, who are you?” The composer of the song, Pete Townsend, seemed frustrated that he couldn’t quite get the person to really admit who they are. I wonder if that inability to know who we really are is almost universal? 

A recent study I read asked people if they felt that they were self-aware. 90% of people answered that they believed that they were. However, upon undergoing a series of tests, the study discovered that less than 15% of people are actually self-aware. In the context of our spiritual journey, I wonder how we would answer the question, “Who are you?” Are you a passionate believer?  Are you a cultural believer? Are you a non-believer?” What would family, friends and co-workers say? 

Our lives are full and people are incredibly busy, but I encourage you to take the time to ask yourself, “Who am I?”  Get ready…because depending on the answer to that question, changes may be coming.
