    Self-definition and relationship-definition.  We have to define ourselves million times a day.  When we enter into a relationship we have to define what we want from that relationship: is it an acquaintance, is it friendship, is it more than friendship, is it patronising?  It is one thing to emphasize our ontological relationships i.e. our inter-relatedness at the level of being and another to consciously participate in it.  Our relationships must be based on awareness and the choice that comes from awareness of what I want and don't want.  This will foster a greater responsibility and freedom in our relationships.
