Why You Might Not Be Who You Think You Are, by Julia Shaw

I spent my $35 income tax refund on this new book. Dr Shaw has a PhD in psychology from Simon Fraser University. I have always suspected I am not who I think I am. Now I may finally have the proof I've been looking for.

There's someone in my head and it's not me. :)

Of course not, I am not my thoughts. :D They aren't even mine in the first place.

:D

A better question might be - 'what am I doing that prevents me from realizing that I'm already awake?'

That answer could take seconds, years or lifetimes...

I am always fascinated by ex politicians all contracting either selective amnesia, or the rediscovery of ethics on retirement. Rewriting history seeming to be their main occupation other than making money from post-dated bribes.
