who we believe we are

The construction of who we believe we are, 
what the world is like, 
and how we should behave is 
an ongoing exercise that we are undertaking all the time. 
We are not spectators 
who have simply been thrown into a world
 that is pre-made or pre-given. 
We are participants
 in a continuous project of constructing
 and reconstructing the world in which we live.
~  Traleg Rinpoche
