One of the most important questions for us to ask and answer is “Who am I?” We might be surprised to learn how many people don’t give the question much consideration, but then again, we might discover that nearly everyone at some point in their life searches for an answer to this question. Religion offers different answers, but one of the most prominent is the idea that we are created by The Divine and are therefore like The Divine in our nature. What that means is open to interpretation. The question also begs an answer not only as to who we are, but why we are.
In keeping with the concepts of Religious Recovery, it is not my intention to tell anyone what to believe or even that they have to believe anything at all about who they are and why they are. But, the answers we decide upon can determine the quality of our existence. If love plays a role in the answers we choose, then our lives might be directed in more loving ways. If happiness is part of our beliefs, then our lives might be directed in more happy ways. If community and service are part of our answer, then those things might play a part in the essence of our earthly existence.
