'...that's what you want me to think, isn't it? That's what you want everyone to think. But why are you going to such lengths to create an identity which I suspect is a grossly exaggerated distortion of your true self?'
Susan Howatch gets Jon Darrow to ask Miss Fielding a foundational spiritual formation question in her novel 'Glamorous Powers'. What an observation and insight to personality!
'But why...?' a painful question but full of momentum for those desiring growth!
