To Die For Truth

I found the following David Brooks article in the New York Times to be an excellent article on suffering. There are a lot of layers to peel away before we can discover what we authentically are. I am not sure that this ever ends during one’s lifetime although I wouldn’t know because I am  still peeling away layers of my personality and discovering more authentic parts of myself that I left behind at some point. These layers may have aided me in surviving in some ironic way: at the same time they covered over and hid  what I  truly am.  But as I read in Nisgardattas book “I Am That”   “A man willing to die for the truth will get it.”
