If I define myself in terms of ‘what I do’, it locks me up into structures, hierarchies; into what the world is defining. While if I start defining myself at a deeper level, in terms of  ‘who am I’, I am able to define myself in ways that give me meaning, satisfaction, and fulfillment.

In fact, so much of life goes in trying to handle the ‘what I do’ dimension, that very little time is spent in the ‘who am I’ dimension of existence.

All fulfillment begins only when I acknowledge this dimension. Otherwise, there is only acquisition.
