Jean Vanier moment

this gentle man of God is able to express so clearly
what took me many months to understand ....
and thus guard against running from instead of moving into ...

Solitude does not separate me from others; it helps me love them more tenderly, realistically and attentively. I begin to distinguish between the false solitude which is a flight from others to be alone with egoism, sadness or a bruised sensitivity, and the true solitude which is communion with God and others.
