During your life, have you made much progress in understanding what is real and what is not? What is real life? What is real love? Who is the real you?
What is truth? What is the most likely outcome of a situation you may be facing? Is it wise to go somewhere or do something? Should you flee or fight when the going gets tough? Is there another alternative to both options?
What are your beliefs now? How have they changed over the years? In what ways have they stayed the same, and why?
Whatever your ideas about the real world, there are several aspects of worldliness to contend with. It is necessary to think about what the world means to you. Is there a world inside your mind as well as one surrounding you in the here and now? Is there a world of the past, the present and the future?
Do you have particular preference for one cultural world over another? Do you prefer a small or large social world? To you prefer multiple social and cultural words - heterogeneity - or just one, unified social and cultural world - homogeneity?
Do you act in the social sphere with good will towards all people, without suspicion and superstition, or do you prefer to act on the basis of prejudices and stereotypes? On the other hand, do you fit somewhere in between, being cautious with strangers and people who have not behaved with good will towards you in the past, but being friendly to those you feel affection towards?
Whatever your beliefs, religious or philosophical, you may see yourself as living life like Christian in The Pilgrim's Progress. Alternatively, you may think of yourself in some other way:
Wikipedia - The Pilgrim's Progress
Wikipedia - Stereotypes
Wikipedia - Homogeneity and Heterogeneity
