Richard Rohr likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, and separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds us. In a sense, True self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation. Rohr, a Roman Catholic priest and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation is author of "Falling Upward."
