Who is Truly Wise…?
It is Easy to See the Insanity in the Daily Routines of Others, but Remain Wholly Unconscious of Your Own…
After all…didn’t you grow up learning it was safer to hide in the rabbit hole, only peeking your real head out, when you knew no one was watching…? Of course you did! And didn’t you also learn, from your earliest memories onward, conforming to the ready made prison model of expected self-sabotaging behavior would reward you with a greater degree of self-isolation in your room, where you could escape into your own fantasy world…?
Of course you did! Change…is not only unacceptable in a ready-made prison model of learning and expected social behavior…change is to be feared… And the more you fear change…the more you resist loving yourself, first, and consequently feel isolated, abandoned and unloved by those closest to you…
In fact…the whole world becomes an easy target for finger-pointing…making it easy to ever avoid the ugly and scary truth about yourself… You have been imprisoned by unreasoned fear for the whole of your life… And the thing that keeps you imprisoned there is fear itself… Self-paralysis does not allow for taking even the first step—making the simple decision to embrace loving yourself, becoming your best friend, the one true friend upon whom you may absolutely depend to show sincerity, sincerity and more sincerity—decision-making, decision-making and more decision-making…
So you remained imprisoned in your rabbit hole, repeating the same cycles over and over, never questioning the stupidity that is your wretched life… You don’t deserve any better, anyway… Do you? Of course you do! You just don’t believe you do… You readily believe the picture of your personality and your life that others paint onto you. And the pigment of their own wretched stupidity sticks to your fear that they may be right… Is there any hope for you? Is there any way out of the nightmare maze that is your present life…?
The very thing…change…which would allow you to permanently exit the rabbit hole, and grow through new life experiences, requiring many decisions, self-assertion and self-reliance, and consequently grow into greater knowledge and eventual wisdom…you avoid…as though it were a plague, a viral contagion, ready to strike you down and cause your untimely death… Such is the illusion of unreasoned fear… Oh my… How are you ever going to escape the neck and leg irons that keep you bound to your illusion that co-dependency is all you ever had, from the beginning, and all you will ever deserve…until the day you lie on your deathbed, watching the whole of your wretched, fearful life pass before your eyes?
And so, my friend…wisdom…or…insanity…? Do you have the spiritual courage to decide?
