Day 3505: Who are you really?

I’m someone who really asks a lot of questions, but I don’t think I’ve ever asked, “Who are you really?”

Who asked that question is Michael A. Singer, who I really like.

Who am I really is someone who probably DOES ask the question “Who are you really?” but not in those exact words. I think that’s what I was asking last night on Twitter:

Who are you really? Are you someone who wants to see my other images for today?

Who is the Daily Bitch really?

Heres what I find on YouTube when I search for “who are you really?”

I also find this:

Who are you really? Are you someone who’s going to leave a comment about this “who are you really?” post?

Who am I really? I’m someone who is really grateful I get to blog everyday for me and for YOU.

Day 3360: Problems

No matter what’s going on in our lives, the human brain seems to center on problems.

Once we solve one problem, that solution evaporates from our minds, and the brain seeks out the next problem.

As with anything, there are pros and cons to our natural focus on problems. We solve issues but we can also feel overwhelmed and negative about the future, as we never get a break from this unceasing line-up of problems.

As usual, I have a problem with how I’m writing this post, but I’m still moving on to the next paragraph.

Here’s a quote from a book I have no problem recommending:

If we take a snapshot of our inner problems, we will see that each person has what we’ll call “the problem of the day.” This is the thing that is bothering them the most at any given moment. When the current problem isn’t bothering them, then the next one pops up, and when that one isn’t bothering them, the next one pops up. That is what your thoughts are about. Your thoughts tend to focus on what is bothering you today. Your thoughts are about the problem, why it is bothering you, and what you can do about it. If you don’t do something about this, it will go on for the rest of your life.

The Untethered Soul, Michael A. Singer

People sometimes talk about “First World Problems” — acknowledging that their current problems are much less difficult than other people’s who are suffering far more.

Here’s a definition of First World Problem:

When my mind is focused on people whose problems include loss of home, limbs, life, loved ones, or a peaceful future, I have a problem sympathizing with people who have problems like the one in the definition above.

As usual, I have no problem sharing my thoughts, feelings, and recent images with you here.

It’s no problem for me to write down my story here, no matter what day it is.

I know some of my readers have a problem if I don’t include our cats in my posts, so here’s Joan!

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “problems.”

I also find this:

And I find a problem that was featured in the show “The Good Life.”

If you have a problem with (or any other reaction to) this “Problems” post, I hope you leave a comment below.

I have no problem expressing my gratitude for my blessings and for all who help me create these daily posts, including YOU.

Day 3346: Consciousness

Thanks to my friend and hairstylist, Mia, I’m reading this wonderful book about consciousness.

Michael A. Singer describes consciousness as “pure awareness” — the part of you that is observing your thoughts, emotions, and internal and external experiences.

Here’s a dictionary definition of “consciousness.”

I’m conscious of the fact that since I’ve started reading “The Untethered Soul,” I’m more in touch with my consciousness, calmness, clarity, and joy.

What does your consciousness tell you about the other images in today’s blog?

My consciousness is aware that there is a lot going on, outside of me and inside of me. And I can’t help but wonder about a day that seems to celebrate being unconscious in public spaces.

I’m working at home today without a break from 9 – 5, so I doubt I’ll be losing consciousness at my desk.

Here’s what I find when I search for “consciousness Michael A. Singer” on YouTube:

My consciousness is aware that I am not my thoughts, feelings, or this message on the side of a carton of sour cream:

Thanks to all who have consciousness here and now, including YOU!
