Raam, this is wonderful and yes you do need to write a book – you have so much to offer and I have enjoyed reading and re-reading this post several times. I love the bit about solitude, in fact so many of the points you make including living by your values and becoming your best friend are excellent.
My one piece of advice is ….
If you want to know who you really are – watch carefully and observe what makes you happy, sad, energised, alive, motivated etc, then you will learn what path to follow. I tell this to our daughter who is 15, there is so much pressure to conform in society to the mainstream views and behaviours but we must be true to ourselves or we will have an unhappy heart.
This aligns with your post Raam about “Follow your inner compass” I suppose, which is also brilliant 🙂
Love to all x
