Mindful Monday: An open secret

"We think our confusion is highly secret. It's actually highly public. In fact, the secret is a secret only for us privately; the fact that such a secret is being kept is public. The self-deception is as outrageous as that. We should admit this infamous, familiar pain. This is the pain that is actually happening." -- Chögyam Trungpa
