I spoke earlier on the idea of our wearing social mask and other things. In continuation, you will find that we also put up barriers for protection, to keep other people away...but those same barriers also keep us inside, restricting our freedom. When someone says: "you are pushing my buttons", that isn't exactly true. What's actually going on is that they are touching a wound in your mind and you react because it hurts. We are existing in a hell without recognizing it as such. Hell is a place of suffering, a place of fear, a place of judgement, of violence, war, pain and a place of punishment that never seems to end. Sounds a lot like life doesn't it? How many of us or how many people do we know of that are going through these changes everyday, everynight, every week, every year? Why is this so? It's so because as humans we are full of blame, full of guilt, full of emotional poison--envy, strife, hate, anger, sadness and suffering. Those who came before us created this drama, this madness that we inherited as children. They did it through the rules of society, it's laws, its religions, its different customs and ways to be. All this information was then stored in our minds like a million voices talking to us all at once. We were born into this society, we grew up in this society, and we learned to be like everyone else in this society...inheriting the same poisons that they did as if that's the way it's supposed to be...as if it's natural. How did we get these poisons in us? Was it always like this? In the next chapter we will explore these issues for further understanding as we begin to explore the process of self healing to be born a new...to be whole...to love as we once did...to live.
