The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself – Anais Nin
I don’t even remember where I saw this quote. To be honest with you, this post was sitting in my draft files and I decided to give it a shot.
When I first think of this, I think about how we can truly know if we are living deeply or not. We could always live more deeply than where we are currently living.
I think the quote is talking about a deeply lived life that goes beyond itself.
I guess that means that we tend to live shallow lives – selfish lives – truthless lives. Okay, so maybe not truthless but more truths within itself.
What I do know is that you don’t really come to the truth of a line like this unless you have gone through some stuff. Only in deep pain can you know a truth like this. How do you respond to this quote?
