Personal Liberty

17 01 2009

“We are at liberty to be real or to be unreal, we may be true or false, the choice is ours. We man now wear a one mask now and now another and never if we so desire appear with our own true face. But we can not make these choices with impunity, causes have effects and if we lie to ourselves and to others then we can’t expect to find the truth and reality whenever we happen to want them.” – Thomas Merton

I listened to this message and it hit home, deep within my heart. How many times do we try to conform to others and start wearing “masks” just to be able to be part of something? Society as a whole encourage us to do so and individuality is something many of us have to fight for at some point in our life.
