Who Are You ... and other profound questions
I spent last weekend at a friend's lake home and there were many more kids there than I'm used to - so I found myself holing up in a spare bedroom to regroup and two songs made their way into my brain as I tried to find a minute of silent time.
The two songs were: "Who Are You?" by the Who and "Do You Know Where You're Going To?" by Diana Ross.
Wow - those are pretty profound questions, and ones I'm guessing many of us don't even consider in our lives.
If we don't know who we really are, or where we're headed, it makes life a lot more difficult as we become like tiny boats on a huge ocean, waiting for the wind to decide where we end up.
Really, it matters little who we say we are anyway. Who we really are - regardless of whether or not we even know - is what really counts.
So if we can answer the questions "Who are you?" and "Do you know where you're going to?" that's great. But even if we can't, the answers are still there. We really already do know the answer - we've just got to wade through the other stuff first.
