An exploration of the deepest questions of identity, spirituality and meaning. In Falling Upward (and many of his other teachings), Richard Rohr talks at length about the False Self and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity, especially if its preoccupations continue into the second half of his life. Here he focuses on the True Self, which he likens to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, needing to be searched for, uncovered and separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation.
