LOS ANGELES, CA - In the children's movie, 'The Lion King,' the baboon prophet speaks to the young lion king who is looking at his reflection in the water and sees nothing. The prophet tells him to 'look deeper.' The voice of the young lion king's father speaks, 'Remember who you are. You are my son and the one true king. Remember who you are.' That is a good example of peeling back the onion. When the lion king remembered who he was, he went on to his rightful role as the new king.
Another example of peeling away the onion is in the story of David and Goliath (I Samuel 17). David came to bring bread and provisions to his brothers who were serving in the army of Israel. The whole army of Israel was cowering under the threats of Goliath.

In life, to solve a problem, it may be necessary to metaphorically peel away a layer of the onion. Is there an overlay of someone else's armor being used in trying to bring an answer? It is not that the armor is not the right tool or tactic or skill for someone else, it just might be that the solution to the current issue is something different. If so, it is necessary to examine this, reconsider, and peel away the layer of the onion in order to win the battle.
