Finding your self or figuring out who you are is one of those eternal questions. We often struggle with it as teenagers, then again in our thirties, or during a mid-life crisis. The struggle to know thy Self is as old as spiritual traditions that attempted to answer the question.
And get a lay of the land of the different worlds to be explored and some areas of illusion that get in the way of knowing your self.
It is this quest for personal integrity that forms the journey of the mythological hero. When you become self-aware and conscious you realize that you are a multi-dimensional being and you live in a multidimensional world. It can appear complicated and confusing at the start, but when you have awareness, life becomes clear and simple.
To know your self does not mean to define your self. Being completely authentic is not a process of declaration or creating your self in any way. Finding your self is more a process of discovery. In that process of discovery, you peel away all the layers of illusion and false self-images that interfere with knowing and feeling authentic.
