“Finally I am coming to the conclusion that my highest ambition is to be what I already am. That I will never fulfill my obligation to surpass myself unless I first accept myself, and if I accept myself fully in the right way, I will already have surpassed myself.”
Love this! Thomas Merton always makes me stop and think.
What an amazing quote. So glad you shared it. I always mean to read Merton, but haven’t. This quote inspires me to follow through. Of course, with the depth of these words, I have plenty to reflect upon until I do.
Say whaaaat? Really, tho’ a thought provoking quote. Where do you find these, Jeanie? 🙂
