We usually think we know ourselves, sometimes the perceived self-image is taken rather than the actual self-image, who we wish to be and not who we are. Awareness is a product of several reasons, one of them being self-knowledge and being honest with oneself. Ask yourself what is it you value? What are you attached to as in what you find important? Consider the first few things/issues you indentify for what we value affect how we lead our lives. Are they material? Spiritual? Individualistic? Collective? Finite? Universal? They could be a mixture of several ones. In the end you choose what path to follow but this is simply to increase understanding and realize what factors influence your life.
