Self empowerment, belief in oneself,
self acceptance, determination, intent, and

The following excerpt from THE DREAM OF BEING: aphorisms, ideograms, and aislings, by Jack Haas, metaphorically describes the importance of belief in oneself, of self empowerment, acceptance, determination, and intent, to rid oneself of the torpor, inertia, and doubt which so limits life.
                                          the wall

     A long time ago a person was chased to a wall and then slain before they could dig through it. And then came many others, similarly chased, similarly doomed to be slaughtered while digging at the same spot. Until after a great duration the mass of indistinguishable corpses created a tremendous labyrinth hindering both hunter and prey.
     Now, perhaps you are within this interminable structure. Perhaps even leaning against that very wall- a barrier attacked with bleeding fingers and panicked charges. You can sense the danger, the confinement, and the hidden anguish forming the foundation of it all. Yet you do not consider digging. Not until they are upon you.        
Jack Haas has been called "The Kerouac of the new millennium."(FW) He is a wilderness explorer, world traveller, and shares his time between British Columbia, Hawaii, Ireland, and India.
