  9. And the greatest truth is that inner life doesn't have any walls..and is as vast as the sky.. free of any interference or control... May the walls melt..

    1. Some walls do not melt, The walls erected by drugs are difficult to cross. But walls created by being forced into sex business can become impossible to cross.

  17. There is no wall that cannot be demolished with the flick of a brain switch. Finding the switch is the difficult bit.

    1. Well said. Finding that switch is a bit difficult. With little love and acceptance, that switch can be turned on.

      Thanks a lot!

  19. Might there be a door or a window for escape, if the walls are too high?

    1. Sometimes a person is too terrified to open that window, (s)he keeps waiting for a knock at the door which never comes.

      Thanks a lot Wabi!

    1. They can be self constructed but in case of unfortunate few they can be society constructed walls too high and too obstinate to crumble.

      Thanks a lot for leaving your footprints here.
