A variety of other titles came up for me to use with this text tee statement:
“LIBERATION tee!” or “FREEDOM tee!” or “Crawling out of Plato’s cave”
This last title is a memory I had in the middle of the night, of reading the Greek philospher Plato’s metaphorical description of typical human existence (even back thousand of years ago when he lived). He described the typical human as one huddling in the back of a cave, facing away from the small opening and believing they were actually chained in place. When the sun came up and shone into the cave the human(s) experienced their greatest terror… seeing their own shadows projected onto the rough stone walls. Their greatest FEAR was thinking about what terrible things would happen to them if they ever left the safety of the cave. If anyone even mentioned the idea or asked about the possiblity of going ‘out into the light’… great horrific tales were told, punctuated with the false rattling of their non existence imprisoning chains. Great messures were taken to make sure no one would even think about, much less actually leave the dank, dark cave that they knew was all that really mattered and insured their continued existence.
The text for this tee I ‘lifted’ from my current inspirational reading. Ever more so I find my beliefs about the “shadows on the wall” are melting away… and I know the chains that bind do not exist… whether they be beliefs about money, health or even ‘who I used to believe I was’. I find the internet a great tool for inspiration and carving the ‘cave opening’ ever larger, allowing ever more light to flood in, as I now face outward with ever greater anticipation of my ‘walking totally free’.
It’s about FREEDOM and/or LIBERATION from my beliefs, my stories… my fear of the future.
Hope you’ve enjoyed these words, if you realize “IT’S ALL ABOUT YOU”… “YOUR FREEDOM”… then there’s great hope… and laughter… and love.
