REMBRANDT PAINTED 63 SELF-PORTRAITS, searching for the spiritual within the physical; believing that he had to enter into his own dark cellars and light rooms, if he wanted to penetrate the mystery of interiority; realizing that what is most personal is most universal. (inspired by Henri Nouwen). How is it possible to know someone else if you do not know yourself? If you don’t know who you really are, how can you possibly seek a partner? Reaching out to others who are suffering is a wonderful motivation; but reaching in to know your own suffering will better assure your effectiveness.
