young child and realized I was the same person. I was grown and had

I sat for three days and pondered this. I have not changed. A
friend came over and invited me up to his girlfriend's cabin in the
mountains for a long weekend. I went and we immediately got snowed
in. I was alone so I went to the library and just plucked down a
book at random. It was Ramacharaka's 'Raja Yoga'.
The first Idea in the book was, "The I is changeless".
A nice weekend read.
