Have you ever seen yourself as a hologram person? Looked at your aging face in the mirror only to encounter the child you once were popping out at short intervals beneath the creases and odd white hair? Have you ever wondered if the child you were is still there?

Have you ever stopped to see yourself through the eyes of who you have become? Have you ever considered that you may actually be someone else living a borrowed life? You look at yourself and see another "you" peering back. Quite possibly it may be the "you" whose life you recall as a blur before you turned into this "you". No doubt, this too will become another blur, distanced by time.

Time and more time. So much time spent on focusing on and reacting to the external pressures when perhaps the answers are locked within. Or maybe reality is the "hologram doorway" opening the path to new realities and possibilities. Who knows? Within the hologram may be all the Buddhas, Jesuses, Jonathan Livingston Seagulls and enlightened beings we have the potential of becoming if only we weren't just shadows of our potential. If only we could pinpoint the source of this hologram.

Do you doubt this?

"Doubt sees the obstacles
faith sees the way.
Doubt sees the darkest night
Faith sees the day.
Doubt dreads to take a step
Faith soars on high.
Doubt questions 'who believes?'
Faith answers, 'I'."

Such a vast topic. Indeed we are a combination of many small particles within our brain (our memories), and we could combine these in all the many different ways you mention, but usually we are imprisoned in a very limited subset of these.

Good question, how to find out more about these possibilities and to actually live them, probably some overall useful strategies are better to mention than giving a long essay about all there is to say and think about. (But in practice there really is lots to think about, if you think about it, and you should also think about it, but then writing all this down is really too much work, and no-one would read it.)

So, dynamics is a good advice. Simply speed up the rate of changing yourself, and you will find out more in a shorter time.

(And then later filtering the good things and keeping them, and letting the less exciting things move by, all goes natural once you've started.)

Thanks for your are right - nobody would read the book of life because life is like air...You cannot explain it. It needs to be breathed to be understood.

I was just having a discussion on a variation of this topic. I was saying that I didn't really remember who I was (as in what I thought) particularly when I was young. That person is a mystery to me now. Same goes for the person who was married to my ex-husband, even though that wasn't all that long ago. I know why she made her choices logically, but nothing else about her makes much sense to me. I even remember when I looked in the mirror and saw myself as a stranger. Scary stuff.
