A Selection from Seasons of Contemplation: A Book of Midnight Meditations
There are so many things that distort our character. Fatigue, emptiness, anger, trauma, illness, addiction, the media… So many things are pulling on us—twisting us to become someone we are not. When we achieve balance and are at peace within ourselves, we are not affected by the pulling of the distortive forces at work. We need to achieve balance if for no other reason than we can finally be free of it all and can at last know who we are.
