      The first and last thing we need to know is our identity (who am I? and why am I here?).

    Once this is known all life choices become simple. Then there are no temptations, no sacrifices and no need for control(restraint).

    Our identity becomes obvious as we stop imitating and following others.

    Discard all role models to banish the fog of confusion and get a clear mind; certainty with humility.
