Mirror, mirror on the wall..

Merton knew only too well that the sin, evil, and violence he found in the world were the same sin, the same evil, and the same violence he had discovered in his own heart through solitude, silence, and prayer. The impurity in the world was a mirror of the impurity in his own heart. – Henri Nouwen
