Living a Discerning Life in a Complex, Harsh World

“There are basically two things that any one of us does in the face of sadness and grief. We can shut down and pretend we are not feeling this. This, of course, eats away at us over time and we end up living very distracted lives that are more and more superficial. Our other choice is we can open. Those are the two basic gestures: stand back or move into.” — From Living a Discerning Life in a Complex, Harsh World
