I talked with Dr. Felix Padilla, a Sociology professor and author of "The Struggle for the Authentic Self"


"The Struggle for the Authentic Self: Creating Your True Self for a Peaceful World concerns itself with the issue of self identity and awareness, as such, it is built around two inter-related and very central questions: “Who is the real me?” and “What is my purpose for living in the human world?” In response to these two and other related questions, the book’s purpose is to awaken in individuals an intense desire to live an authentic reality, recognizing that their self identity, constructed mainly from society's forces and conditions, is not their true, authentic self. The authentic self originates from our deep inner feelings, emotions, passion and creativity or what is popularly referred to as our intuitive intelligence or knowledge, our highest intelligence."
