Encounter

Reality as a Cage

April 10, 2017

“…we often suffocate within circumstances. When reality is reduced to appearance, it becomes a cage.” (Carron, Disarming Beauty)

This too rings so true. So often I sit, observing the situation unfold around me, and I wind up feeling trapped. My experience with reason often leads me to believe that I am surrounded by crazy people.

While there may be an unbalanced amount of emotion going on around me- I too am out of synch with reality. I shut of fmy feelings entirely- removing any bit of heart from the equation, and in turn losing some of my humanity.

I don’t want to act like a robot, but it keeps my heart and mind safe from the attack and the pain. But I’m missing out on so much of life. Worse, I am missing the opportunity to fully encounter others and to see the deep beauty that surrounds me.

How do you fully encounter the people around you?
