To find out our Soul begins with a basic question, “Who am I?” How do you define yourself?
Is it by a name you were given? By your nationality, ethnicity or religion, which is often the result of where you were born?
Do you view yourself as young or old? Tall or short? Thin or fat? Many of these characteristics are relative and depend on comparison with another person to be meaningful.
How about your emotions and behaviours? Do you define yourself as sad, happy, caring or a selfish person? Or by some other characteristics?
What about your thoughts? Do you consider yourself intelligent, simple practical or impractical? Or maybe you subscribe to certain political views, so you might label yourself liberal or conservative. Yet none of these are truly you because they are conditionally real. They are not permanent aspect of your being.
Once we go beyond all the various labels you start uncovering your true nature, which is often described as peeling the layers of an onion.
