Secrets are shapeshifters that can paralyse us and mutate us beyond our true nature to the point that we become beyond recognition.
Hate, guilt, shame and fear mutate us into mere shadows, hollow shells, smiling outside, crying inside.
We lock ourselves in these cages, our visions occluded by the terrifying notion of being exposed.
When all along, there is a way out from this cage right before our eyes.
In meditation, we are given the keys to walk into the darkness within our souls.
Perhaps this is where you are given the choice － do you step through or not.
Perhaps this is why so many beings find meditation real hard work. It is so easy to not do it, to numb, to distract.
Because it may seem daunting, and sure, no one said it is easy.
When we walk into the darkness we have to be brave enough to face our own darkness
To meet the ghouls within so we can transform
So we can die and be born again
