“We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real … and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists.” ~ Thomas Merton
That Truth is within. The word ’surrender’ comes up in our circles and workshop under a variety of circumstances. The ‘external mask’, the self-made, false identity objects mightily to that word and can make it a highly unpalatable idea. Surrender to the Self within. Choose Again!
