A very nble pursuit indeed...
Interesting, interesting perhaps we are too far out of equilibrium by the dominance of science in terms of defining us?

I still have 2 daughters at home and all though their bedrooms are not the pit of despair at times when they were know-it-all teens I certainly can relate...

A significant issue indeed; some statistics suggest that procrastination begins in our formative years and carries through most everything we do; the exception being death...
I love this, it makes so much sense. If I interpret this correctly (and that is indeed suspect) you are referring to the internal battle in all of us of our 2 entities?
I suppose it's how you define it I was thinking of the 'I', that demands so much attention, the ego?
Ah, the Freudian connection, understood...
The same answer, in Buddhist terms, would not be about the ego, but simply about having any self-image or self-centered idea at all. One who conquers the self simply lives naturally, caring for self and others equally.
Of course, the whole concept of 'I', brings up the question, what is the 'I', that has this self perception.
Yes, in both Buddhism and Hinduism, we use meditations asking "What am I?" and rejecting any answer in words until the illusion of a self is conquered and the nature of reality becomes clear.
