So who are you? The more you look into this issue, the more elusive it appears to be. Are you a living thing? a compilation of encounters and recollections? A relationship partner? You become aware that there is far more to you than any of these elements can capture each time you think about them. In this book, spiritual guide Michael Singer examines the subject of who we are and comes to the conclusion that our consciousness, or the capacity to perceive ourselves and the outside world, is where our identity lies. Singer demonstrates how the growth of consciousness might help us all to dwell in the present moment and let go by drawing on traditions of meditation and mindfulness.
