When we wear a mask, we are unable to see inside ourselves. It is a protective covering that denies our truth.
3/22/11 Most of us are familiar with the idea of keeping it real and have an intuitive sense about what that means. They don’t need to hide behind any masks to keep themselves safe from their fear of how they might be perceived. They don’t present a false sense in order to appear perfect, powerful, and more independent. The world shows us images of physical and material perfection. We suffer internally when we masquerade ourselves, and should seek to example letting our defenses down and relax in the truth of who we are.
