The subject of this post I (I am) has become somewhat interesting to me for some time now. Some of the questions around this I are

1) Who am I?
2) What am I?
3) What are my responsibilities in life?
4) Why I am doing or not doing certain things?
5) Do I understand myself?

I find that I don't understand quite well myself (or probably need to improve from current state). Things like understanding my priorities & taking care of responsibilities etc. People (family, friends, society, job etc.) around me have some expectations from me and I have my own interests, now how much I am paying attention to them? Lot of things demand attention how do I keep these things balanced? I feel that one can only do that if he realizes him-self (spiritual self-realization? I donno) i.e know some answers to these questions to some extent.

May be Gita can enlighten me like it did to Arjuna and/or may be Taoism will show me the path.

Last question surrounding I is Am I becoming spiritual? well I have no shame in admitting that I am still very much materialistic. I would love to know the answers to these question to do good Karma. I should try understanding this stuff sooner or later.
