You are the one and only threshold

hisu-lee-26812“If we become addicted to the external, our interiority will haunt us.  We will become hungry with a hunger no image, person, or deed can still.  To be wholesome, we must remain truthful to our vulnerable complexity.  In order to keep our balance, we need to hold the interior and exterior, visible and invisible, known and unknown, temporal and eternal, ancient and new, together.  No one can undertake this task for you.  You are the one and only threshold of an inner world.”

–John O’Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
