Who are you, really?

One part of your mind wants to give up smoking,
another part wants to relax and have a cigarette.

One part of your mind despises envy,
another part feels clearly the bitterness.

One part of your mind is very serious and has high morale,
another part is frivolous and immoral.

One part of your mind is crystal clear and awake,
another part is like a hypnotized sleepwalker.

There are also genuinely friendly and unselfish parts of your mind,
and self-righteous parts, egotistical parts and ridiculous parts;
and parts that you don't know of,
until specific situations are showing them to you,
heroic parts, evil parts, idiotic parts...

Moreover, one part of your mind is able to notice and observe the other parts.

Your mind is a mixture, but who are you,
the observer that has a mind that is made up of many different parts?
Is the observer also a part of your mind?
I believe it is.
I believe that I am a part of the mental processes,
the electrochemical processes in my head.

It is possible to step outside oneself
and observe oneself, the question is if this is an illusion.
