Father Leo’s Daily Meditation

“Humankind cannot bear very much reality.”

– T. S. Eliot

I wonder why we find it hard to face reality? I preferred to escape from my problems, avoid who I was, not deal with issues of God, relationships or loneliness — and live in a world of “make believe”. However, it did not work. The pain of being a “fake” and living a lie became too great so I asked for help.

Today I am on a journey towards reality and it is a spiritual journey. I know I will never be completely real. A part of me will always be “diseased”. I must live and treat my compulsive behavior on a daily basis — but my life is getting better, and I am slowly growing in an understanding of who I am and what I need.

God, let me be as real as I can be.
