Self: Maps to help us find ourselves

As a person on the road I experience myself as a separate entity from those I meet.  I am an ego.  But I also know that I am more than and sometime very different from who others expect me to be or insist that I am.  How do I discover my true self, and how do I transcend it such that I am more and more self-actualized?
