Let us try something. Think about the following questions: Where do you seek refuge? The place where you are isolated from the world and all by yourself. What does it look like?
The place where, whenever you visit it, you find yourself and only yourself. Do you feel good there? The place where you can’t get away from yourself, from your thoughts. You can’t hide.
You must be honest with yourself. Is it a troubling thought? The mask you are wearing is your own. The mirror where you see yourself is also looking at you.
A fight is raging in you: for life, for love, for vulnerability, for death. Who will win?
