Most of us are trapped in a prison of our own substance and we don’t even know what the bars are made of. They are not of our circumstances, or even of our reactions to them per se. More often than not they are the fear of our own emotions. Too frequently in life we refuse some opportune course of action because it might lead to excessive shame, guilt, fear, anger, heartache… these are alarm systems triggered by the mind’s belief that the past may repeat itself in the present.
Feeling ashamed never killed anyone. Feeling guilty has never caused us physical injury. So why are we so afraid of these sirens which scream into our hearts and shroud our ability to reason effectively?
