It is always desirable to see clearly what is around you, but sometimes there are barriers laid before us to keep us from seeing beyond the barriers or to keep us caged in and away from outside influence. We may feel safe for a while or we may feel closed in by the barriers around us and gradually we come to resent that they are there at all. An enclosure works in two ways: to keep intruders or visitors out and to keep those already inside in place. Both these purposes have their place in certain circumstances but without avenues of entrance and exit the purpose may be eroded and only negative feelings remain toward the barrier or the one constructing the barrier. For barriers may also be people, not restricted only to physical forms. People can be more difficult barriers to breach than any made from inanimate wood or stone since they can barricade you with words and tangle you up in a maze of feelings and doubts. The only defense against this is to have complete confidence in yourself and to be undeniably certain of where you are and where you want to go. If you show any doubt at all you can be driven from your path into a jail of obligation and guilt; and it’s much more difficult to escape through those barriers than to find yourself trapped inside inadvertently. If you do find yourself trapped it is imperative to reconnect with your goals and the direction you need to take to achieve them. Once you do that you’ll find the barriers obstructing you have faded away. Have you been able to breach barriers restricting you?
