Jonathan suggested this topic.
Who are you really? And how can you answer that question? What part of you is the result of your own accomplishments? What part of you is the result of other people's expectations? When did you first realize yourself as unique and autonomous?
If you are defined by your given name, what about people with the same name? If you’re defined by your relationships, what happens as old friendships wane, people divorce, and family members die? If you’re defined by your physical being, what about people who lose a limb, or their hearing or sight? And consider that you turn over all the cells in your body on a fairly regular basis. The molecules that together defined “you” five years ago have all moved on.
What’s left? Do you call it your "soul"? Do you call it your "ego"? Or, is it enough to simply say, "It's me"?
We will be meeting in the Vista room on the right at the top of the stairs.
