FLASHBACK! KEW Episode 34: Self

Many people try to define and argue about what a ‘self’ is, or even whether or not we have one. I’m not too worried about getting it right, but I do think it’s worthwhile to ponder the concept of self.

Basically, it’s a ‘Who Am I’ question, or part of that thought process.

Some people spend a lot of time on that question, others don’t understand why anyone would waste their time asking it.

I think it’s neat to wonder. To be curious. And the ‘Who Am I’ question is stimulating.

And more than that, it’s HELPFUL to ponder such questions – because though the questions might not provide definitive definitions, it does provide INSIGHT. And this insight helps me live my life as well as I can. It helps me understand my wants and needs. Knowing ABOUT my SELF is beneficial to me and those around me.

Moreover, I can’t imagine living a life where I would have questions but not be allowed to pursue answers. Or to have curiosity but not have the wherewithal (is that even a word?) to TRY to answer my questions.

So this episode is a bit about exploring what the self is, and not at all about trying to find a definition:)
