Solitude – Christine Valters Paintner

January 6, 2019

“Solitude is always meant to replenish us to return to the world, not escape it. The longer the Monk stays in the cave, the harder it can become to leave it, as the pleasures of living in a self-created world can be seductive and more appealing than the flesh and blood world in which we must participate.”

 — Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics
