Our Claustrophobic Times

Take a look at the above image. What does it say to you? How do you feel about it? Now contrast it to the poem previous.

We live in very agoraphobic times, we fear open-ness and lack of guarantee. Before we try something, we must know, in spades, what the outcome will be. This means that we are shut up tight in a closet. That closet is constructed out of the ply-wood of comparison mind. All that stuff presses in on us and we don’t even notice, in fact we welcome it because it makes “sense”.

We are closeted and closed in.
