When Oprah Winfrey visited India and spent time with Deepak Chopra, he asked her, “Who are you?” Oprah said that she knew he wanted to know who she was beneath all of the titles and roles she plays. This was a very deep and profound question. Oprah said it took her three days to answer the question. She didn’t give her response on that episode of Super Soul Sunday, but I was intrigued to answer the question for myself.
I knew it would take some time to come up with an answer so I approached it in a very laid back manner. I knew that if I tried to contemplate, or think on it too hard the answer wouldn’t come. So I decided to let the question rest in the back of my mind, always there, trusting that the answer would present itself when the time was right.
It took one week, and on 5/30/2012 it came to me so clearly that I didn’t second guess it. I knew it to be true for me. I also knew it to be true for others and that there are many answers to the question at hand. Here is my answer…
“I am a unique expression of God through which he gets to experience one human perspective.”
So now I ask you, “Who are you?”
