Photo: Step Into the Darkness Without Fear and Loathing.


Taken November 2, 2010 in Jersey City, NJ.

 
This photo symbolizes, for me, 21st century mental slavery…a collective resignation on the part of people everywhere, to stand, trembling, behind a chain link-fence of a limited mind-set, a “glass is half-empty” perspective, instead of going through the unknown to get to the other side, which looks a whole lot better than where you are.
 
What holds us back?
 
It’s the irrational fear of the unknown, that which can’t be readily understood. 
 
It’s the reluctance to traverse the darkness to reach a higher state of enlightenment.
 
We would rather cling to what’s familiar, what’s comfortable, rather than take risks and stretch our minds to consider other viewpoints that may not be our own, or to do things that maybe our parents or families may not agree with. 
 
Usually, we have to be dragged, kicking and screaming through the  chain-link fence in order to find the light, truth and all that we must discover if we are going to aspire to our higher selves.
 
What I want to know is, why do we have to drag innocent parties along with us because of our refusal to do inner work?
 I’m just sayin’.
