A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don't know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox's or bear's, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there. 
Meister Eckhart

  1. What a wonderful quote!

    Nevertheless one's experience can be quite different. Someone feels himself within the depth of his heart very well, but has to go through 40 layers of reality fakes which a busy and afraid community of voices has piled up like blankets or carpets above him.
