A Quote by Kahlil Gibran

"We are all prisoners but some of us are in cells with windows and some without."

― Kahlil Gibran

In the Before Covid times I went to a meditation retreat.  While I was there I spoke with the leader of the retreat who whispered to me, "all the world is a prison".

I think that the prison, if not a physical manifestation limiting your right to move about freely in the world, can also be a mental prison.

The thoughts that we have and even worse, the thoughts we have and believe. 

Examples of this are:

  • "I'm not good at N."
  • "That's not how we do that."
  • "I don't deserve nice things".

These are the the prison walls we build for ourselves.
