How to Find/Know Your Self

As corny as it may sound, I heard it summed up fairly well on the movie Eat, Pray, Love. She called it the "Rule of Quest Physics." It went like this:

"If you're brave enough to leave behind [the] familiar and comforting which can be anything from your house to bitter old resentments and set out on a truth seeking journey either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared most of all to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself then the truth will not be withheld from you."
