When you were a little child, you had innocence, purity and intense curiosity. That little child was your true self, before society began to fill you with shoulds and rules and guilts. Finding your true self does not involve finding something new, for there is nothing new, but in re-discovering that child-sense that you once were. Jesus commanded us to “become as little children”. Can you imagine looking at all things with new eyes, every day? Every single thing you encounter, including yourself, is a miracle; the very ground you tread upon is holy.
