English Bhajan no. 3048 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
I shall be what I want to be
Is it the body known by the name me?
Or the dwelling spirit within me is me?
Know not who I am, want to know me, within me
Close as I am to me, still I am ignorant about me
If seeing is believing, I have never seen me
Still I am sure, I shall find me, within me
Is it all powerful, Almighty always guiding me?
Never let me down, helped me, what I want to be
It is clear as crystal, I am he and he is within me

Explanation in English
Our Param Pujya Guruji, Shri Devendra Ghia (lovingly known as Kaka), is a complete and total devotee of the Divine Mother and the Almighty God, in all their many appearances (Avatars), and has written an incredible 10,000+ hyms with Divine inspiration. These hymns are written in several languages to uplift the distressed, the sick, give relief and well being for all humankind and assist in our Spiritual journey by giving gentle guidance. In this English hymn on introspection, He is asking the following :

We as human being, choose what we want to be
But, are we what we are because of our physical body that has been named so and so on this earth in this life ?
Or, are we what we are because of what is actually buried deepest within us, our soul ?
I would like to know the real me, that is truly inside me
We do not know our own real self even though we are closest to our own self
As we usually believe only whatever that we see with our own eyes, we don’t see our real self
But, I have no doubts that the Almighty God will help me to find my true self within me so that I can become what He really wants me to be
By my becoming what He wants with His help, it is only then that I will know that the Almighty God is within me and I am part of Him and so who I actually am

Due to our being able to understand only the one dimension of this physical life and world, we don’t really know who we are and what God wanted us to be. We also don’t want to accept or believe what we actually are with all our human failings and qualities. But, with God’s grace, He will be able to help us to know what we should be and how to become what He wants. When that happens, we will know that He is in us and we are in Him and that there is no separation between God and us

He has written about 10,000 hymns which cover various aspects of spirituality, such as devotion, inner knowledge, truth, meditation, right action and right living. Most of the Bhajans are in Gujarati, but there is also a treasure trove of Bhajans in English, Hindi and Marathi languages.
