Who Are You?

You say, “My body” … as in “My body is aching”
You say, “My mind” … as in “My mind is racing”

Clearly thus
“You” are not the body
“You” are not the mind

Sensations, sense perceptions, organs
These and more are in and of the body
It follows that “you” are not any of these either

Thoughts, feelings, memories, desires
These and more are in and of the mind
It follows that “you” are not any of these either

If you are not the body-mind
But are aware of body-mind
“You” must exist before body-mind

Who are “you”?

Love
Sundar.
