The “Wheel of Karma” is based upon a Buddhist concept. It translates into replacing one identity with another one in the pursuit of finding the “ice-cream-cone-in-the-sky-reality” that will do it for you.
EXERCISE: See how The Wheel of Karma has played out in your life:
• Think back to what your identities were like in kindergarten, in elementary school, then in high school, during your college years and/or when you first hit the job market, maybe in different relationships or in your marriage…
• Describe your different identities.
(Come up with at least 3 examples, more is even better)
• Feel into the different milestones of your life and notice how the identities you aspired to have changed over time.
