Defining Yourself: Is it Even Possible?

“Trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth.” ~ Alan Watts

This is true.
When you get down to particulars one can make a list of things you think are you, but does That really define you?
Primarily it is likes and dislikes. Do you prefer red wine ? over white wine? Intellectuals over pragmatists? Are you a minimalist? Or do you like a lot of “stuff?”
When you look in the mirror who do you see….actually??
A concept?

Thought and our emotional body plays itself out according to dictates of our environment…..past and present and future though the future has not happened.
Self-awareness occurs through observation.
What do we observe about ourselves?
How far do we take this self-awareness?
