Thomas Merton on Our True Identity

“…a true and mature identity does not consist in the ability to give a final solution to everything. We discover our identity when we accept our place and our way in the midst of persons and things, in a historical situation, that we do not have to completely understand. We simply see that it is our own place and decide to live in it for better or for worse.”

Mystic, Writer, Poet Thomas Merton 1915-1968
