God Grant Us Courage to Open the Difficult Doors

I came across the quote , below, by Thomas Merton and wondered how we can begin to learn
to let go . . .
to be open . . .
to be willing to open those doors inside ourselves that seem the most impenetrable.
May God grant us courage to approach and open them.

An imposing door of a cathedral (duomo) in Orvieto, Italy.

The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late,
is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer
because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you
in proportion to your fear of being hurt.

– Thomas Merton
