BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, April 11th, 2022 by Paul Ferrini in THE SILENCE OF THE HEART

“Most of you are in some kind of denial. That is probably because you have hardly touched your pain. It is too scary to do so. You would rather pretend to be spiritual than admit that you are having a really rough time. You don’t want people to see your dirty laundry: your judgments, your yearnings…It is far easier for you to let people see the pasteboard mask than the contorted face behind it. You are proud of the spiritual adult, but you are still ashamed of the wounded child. The worst thing about denial is that it creates a culture of pretense and shame.”

Paul Ferrini in, “The Silence Of The Heart”
