We discuss the importance of understanding what we really want in life and how we can easily fall into the habit of pursuing someone else's definition of success. We explore how the more aware we become, the more our understanding can expand and create a solid foundation. We also discuss how it is so easy to absorb and assume the desires of others, especially when it comes to ideals and dreams, and the importance of challenging these ideas and looking at our experience to become more in touch with ourselves and our own wants and desires.

We consider the beauty of being able to pursue our own individual desires, and the importance of connecting with ourselves on a deep level to find expression and fulfillment. No one else can feel meaning or fulfillment for us - it is something entirely individual. We have the ultimate freedom to choose what we will, and it is important to make choices that lead towards what is meaningful and fulfilling to us. Our awareness and self-awareness can expand as we pursue this, and we can naturally find our way to others and to unity through our own self-awareness. Ultimately, it is important to pursue what actually matters to us, and to live a good life, a fulfilling, meaningful life.
