Who are you? What is your purpose in life? What is the meaning of life?
These are most vital questions, upon which all other possible questions and answers depend.
Do you truly ask yourself these questions?
You do ask yourself these questions when you are open to acknowledge and accept the silence that follows those questions, without trying at all costs to cover it up with all the answers that have already been given to those questions.
I am not implying that the answer abides in the silence. I mean that it is essential here to be aware about what happens during the interval between the huge embarrassment derived from the incapacity of getting an answer and the need to find an answer merely for reasons of public order.
