No one likes restrictions.
We do not like to be told what we can’t do.
Our natural inclination is toward freedom.
Yet there is always a way to find freedom.
When our movement is restricted, we learn about our internal movements.
We may not be able to travel outside, yet we can always travel deep inside.
Exploring the landscape of our own inner universe.
Learn more about ourselves and our triggers.
It may not be easy to just sit still and be with ourselves at first.
There are so many things we don’t want to see about ourselves.
When the outside distractions are removed, we have no choice but to face them.
By not being able to do the things we usually do our defense mechanisms are weakened.
The walls we put up against our feelings start to crumble.
And now we are left with the stark reality we have been avoiding.
To face those unexpressed and uncomfortable feelings.
To give voice to the anger, pain and suffering we have ignored for so long.
And allow those energies to be freed from our bodies.
We hold on to so much without ever realizing it.
When we are stuck inside without a place to go we meet ourselves in a truer form.
This is a great opportunity if we use it.
It is not a tragedy or a conspiracy.
It is a gift that life have given us if we choose to take advantage of it.
We may never have an opportunity like this again.
Let us not waste it.
For we can find the internal freedom that far surpasses any external freedom.
And when we do, we will never be constrained again.
Can you find the freedom you so desire inside of yourself?
