Who am I ?

I know my name, my whereabouts, my life, my love, everything…

But I don’t know my soul..

I am in quest of the eternal self..

Definitely one day I will.

With my eyes and ears closed, with all my senses sealed, I may attain that realization.

Will I lose my love when I reach that point..?

But how can I be alive then, without my love..?

I am afraid..I am truly afraid.

Or I prefer to believe that it is the realization of love which binds everything together in this world.

    We wouldn’t have the will to look, if it weren’t for these questions and their elusive answers!

    love and self awareness coexist ~and i think the real love is relaxing the hold, letting go. It’s very convoluted. Read it somewhere 🙂

    Nice questions to ask yourself. This means that you’re more than just flesh and blood:)

    Fear makes us fearful, a vicious circle … my twenties were pretty well lost to it.
