so many skins






.



A human being has so many skins inside, 
covering the depths of the heart. 
.
We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! 
.
Why, thirty or forty skins or hides,
as thick and hard as an ox’s or a bear’s, 
cover the soul. 
.
Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there. 

.
~ Meister Eckhart
