Number five question is. Who are you? Is that an important question? Or, would you say? Who am I? Not who you are? Who am I? And if I tell you, who am I, who I am What does it matter? Is only out of curiosity, ain´t it? Is like reading a menu in a window You´re going in there the restaurant, and eat food but when you are standing outside, and reading the menu, won´t satisfy your hunger? So... To tell you, who am I? Who I am? is really quite meaningless First of all, I´m nobody Right? That´s all... It´s very simple as that... I´m Nobody But, what is important, is: Who you are? What are... What are you? When they ask, who you are? They are... In that question is implied. You´re somebody very great, therefor I´m going to imitate you The way you walk, the way you talk, the way you brush your teeth or whatever it is. I´m going to imitate you Is it part of our pattern, do you understand? There is, the hero, or the man who´s inlighten, or the poor guru you see, I´m going to copy everything you do. It has become so absurdly silly, do you understand? Childish... to imitate somebody And are we not the result of lots of imitations? The... religions have said, They don´t use the word imitate, but... give yourself over, surrender yourself Follow me, I am this, I am that. Worship me, right? All this is... what you are. In school we imitate Please... adquiring knowledge is a form of imitation And, of course there is the fashion, short dress, long dress, short hair, long hair, beard, no beard imitate, imitate, imitate And also we imitate, inwardly, so we all know that. But to find out, who you are- Who you are? Not who the speaker is... It´s far more important And to find out who you are... you have to inquire You are, the story of mankind Is that really... a very If you really, you see that, it´s a tremendous... Vitality, energy, beauty, love, Because it... it´s no longer A small, entity, struggling in the corner of the earth You´re part of this... whole humanity It´s a tremendous responsability, vitality, beauty, love... But most of us, won´t see this as we are most of us, councern with ourselves With our particular little problem, particular little sorrow, and so on And to... step out of that narrow circle... Seems allmost imposible... Because we are so... ... conditioned, so programed like the computers that we cannot... learn something new! The computer can, but we can´t See the tragedy of it The machine that we have created, the computer can learn, much faster, much... infinitely more, than I can, than the brain can And the brain, wich has invented that That has... become ultra intelligent machine Where as us, our brain is slightly slow, doll... Because, we have conformed, we have obey, there´s the guru, there´s the priest, there´s the rich. you follow? And when you do revote As the revolutionarist, and the terrotist do, it is still very superficial Changing the pattern of politics Of so called society... society is merely the relationship between people And... We are talking of the revolution Not physical... But the... psicologically revolution In wich there is no At the depth, conformity You have to go on trousers, because you are in this country And you put on the indians it´s your clothes That´s not conformity, that´s nothing, childish But... inwardly Not a feeling of conformity Conformity exists, when there is comparison But a mind, that is... totaly free from comparison That is...
