Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Perhaps this makes me stupid, but that diagram is confusing.

The before and after integrity 'envelope'?  And whoa  . . . look at that, reach your destiny and it's a straight nose dive from there... until you get on with your life, that is.
