I am who I am, what I am, where I am right now at this stage of my life. I am no longer the person I was yesterday, nor am I already the person I could be tomorrow. In the essence I am only half of what I am so far and half of what I might become. Right now I the only thing I can never change about myself is the moment I was born and the other half of me that will never change is the moment I die. I am like the Yin-Yang sign, a black circle(or void if you like) that is halfway enlightened and halfway still in the dark. In the part that I am not yet, lies already something from my past. In part of what I am, lies part what I am not yet. I am like a black hole in the universe drawing stars to me, their lights will reveal my existence and make me grow. How big or small I will be is not yet determined and will be decided in the future. All I know is that all the mass that I draw, all knowledge, skill and insights come down into this singularity that I call ‘me’.
Now you might wonder how I come up with the Yin-Yang sign, since how can what lies behind me and what lies ahead of me are in balance. If I am balanced right now in that, I couldn’t be the Yin-Yang a year ago or one year from now. But I can only refer to the quote “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”, I do not know yet how what lies ahead of me is in balance in what lies behind me. But till my last breath, there is a moment it can be taken away that makes all other times my breath was taken away fade into that one breath.
