Core of Being – Are you are or do you think you are?
Most fundamentally, there are two realms of living.
1. I am.
2. I think therefore I am.
For centuries until now, we are actually moving more more toward number 2. Rene Descartes helped to promote and propagate number 2 with his “Cogito ergo sum”.
Genuine living happens by number 1.
Two can be easily mistaken. The difference between the two could be a very fine line yet it represents a world’s difference.
It’s easier by an example.
It’s the difference between talking about the ocean and swimming in the ocean. One can be so eloquent and seemingly so knowledgeable about the ocean yet never had really swim in it while someone who had and is swimming in the ocean, may just have nothing to say, nor will there be enough words for him to describe to others who had never swum in the ocean.
Fools are people who mistaken the eloquent non-swimmer as a swimmer.
“I think I am” is easy…
“I am” is loaded.
