Some people are prisoners.
They are trapped in the Ivory Tower of Intellect. They are are not taken in the night to these black sites in their minds, but rather they are carefully lured there – they actually believe they belong there.
Light draws us out from the Ivory Tower of Intellect – the skull, where borrowed knowledge governs our actions. This is where dogmatic thinking rules – the tyrant’s throne.
The Ivory Tower has an iron gate to keep emotions suppressed and locked away. Lay siege to it from within – break down the barriers that smother who you really are.
– Trapped in the Ivory Tower
The Light of which I speak shows us Truth. There are many truths that set us free.
One such truth, I have already discussed in two previous posts:
One such supposed injustice pertains to our opportunities in life.
For example, Some people possess the inherent qualities of a leader and yet never attain a leadership position…
I would say, Good! More time to execute and work on yourself!
…Meanwhile, some people who are deficient or utterly lack these inherent qualities ascend the throne.
Positions of Power
It is key for Agents such as ourselves to not be deceived by the tall tale that says we must achieve some lofty position of power. If you have been led to believe this, I would ask you to consider that perhaps it is not the right time.
Some young people are overcome with grief that they are not yet in their career field. Even at 25 or 30 years old, some people feel that if they have not achieved their ideal position in their dream job, they have not yet reached their potential and have missed something, or they are past their prime.
It reminds me of the video I posted of the young man suffering from catatonic schizophrenia. (Click here to read about Catatonia and see the video)
Break down the word Catatonic, the root word CATA meaning down or a regression, and TONIC referring to stretching of the muscles. We’ve discussed how muscles can become increasingly tonic, or tight, when imbalances occur in the body.
The young man in the video is so caught up in the story he has told himself! He has not only listened to the lies told to him, but he has believed them and incorporated them as an integral part of his identity. He is unwilling to give them away.
We can only imagine that it originates from a past trauma, and has spread throughout the body like a virus – distorting his Cause and creating a Rogue State in the place of his nation.
Establish a Perimeter
It is important to Establish a Perimeter even around and within your own mind. Or, in other words, Set boundaries with yourself.
Do not allow injustices to cause you to devalue yourself in the present or in the future.
The young man in the video had devalued himself in the present and in the future. He had become consigned to his fate, and therefore cannot see his own future.
Recognize that you have a future. It is a bright future. Now is not the time to stop – that would be a catatonic state.
Catatonic states occur in the Human mind and can lead to a reduced perspective. People become blind and cannot see their own future. As a result, they consider suicide as an option to end further suffering. They do not see a way out.
But the way out is to keep moving – keep telling your story through the movement of your body. As Agents, we must act and choose and live.
