_______, Therefore I Am

Therefore I am

French philosopher Rene Descartes wrote, "I think, therefore I am." But what if thinking isn't the reason for your existence?

What word or phrase might you substitute for "I think"?

Here are a few ideas:

  • I complain, therefore I am.
  • I have stuff, therefore I am.
  • I improve on things, therefore I am.
  • My parents procreated, therefore I am.
  • I create, therefore I am.
  • God loves me, therefore I am.

Every version gives a very different perspective on life. Meditate on what you would put in the blank and see what you discover.
