‘Trust as a Key’

‘In order to open a door we need a key. In order to open the door of our hearts and to discover the meaning and rhythm of life, we need a key. We can let ourselves remain locked up in a prison of sadness and refuse to live. So we need a key to open a door to life, the door to liberation. This key is trust: to trust that deeper than all the feelings of sadness and death, lies our hidden, true self, which is unique and important. It has a destiny, which is growth to the fullest life possible.’

Jean Vanier, Seeing Beyond Depression, p. 51
