Whatever prevents us from facing reality is a threat to our spiritual well-being. If we only accept ‘facts’ that we agree with, then we are choosing to blind ourselves to the reality in which we live. If our passions govern how we react to things, we are allowing our passions to blind us to reality because in our passions, we tend to see and hear only what we want to see and hear.”
