brick by brick
The bricks of self loathing and defeat come in many forms.. I don’t have the time.. I’m too busy.. I can’t do that.. not enough of this thing or that stuff...I’m tired.. I hurt... brick by brick we wall ourselves off to our potential...wall ourselves off to what this life really is about.
Today I challenge you. I challenge myself...to look at those bricks with fresh eyes. To truly see what they are made of. To see them for what they really are.. imagination gone wild.. You envisioned them into being and you an un-envision them. Look at them Rightly and you will see how hollow they really are. You’ll laugh at how stuck you felt and how easily they crumble when you see through them to Reality.
I stood up today and maybe I didn’t see them all .. but I saw one for what it was. And now through my wall a bit of daylight shines... a chink in my fortress was made in which one day, I might topple the whole prison.
