“All in all, you are just another brick in the wall.”
- Pink Floyd
· So you went and constructed walls all around yourself.
· You’ve built them high and strong, upon a rock-hard foundation.
· What purpose do they serve?
· Do they defend you against the beasts of the world, or do they defend the world against you?
· Perhaps they do both.
· Perhaps they are required.
But if, for whatever reasons, you decide to spend the rest of your life within those confines, then maybe you should reconsider.
** Walls don’t talk back at you; they don’t criticize you.
** They don’t offer unwanted advice.
** They don’t spill the beans.
** Walls cannot rape you, and they don’t let others do so.
But then, think again...
- Walls don’t talk to you; they don’t teach you, they don’t provide guidance.
- They have ears.
- They do hold you back.
- They stare coldly at you when you are sad.
- Your happiness means nothing to them.
Is your fear really so intense that you would be willing to spend your entire life in a self-constructed prison? And yet, can you be proud that your jail stands on firm, established foundations?
- Are you really defending yourself at these expenses?
- Is this the best you can do?
- Is this your philosophy?
- Is this your faith?
