Stalled on the starting line is probably one of the worst nightmares and scenarios for a race car driver on the track.
F1 Stalled On The Start Line
The other day I wrote an entry called Journey through this Realm, and the last paragraph I wrote was:
We’re all here to go on a journey from the unknown to the known and from being in an unconscious state to a conscious state, and what we don’t realize is that there is an element trying to keep us tied and bound to the start line so that we don’t begin this journey and progress along the path of development and internal growth
Now I have a picture in my head of most of the world’s population just milling around, stalled on the starting line, not even realizing that there is even a path to walk upon, and distractions to keep them from even realizing that there is a path to walk, for most are perpetually chained at the starting line, like an elephant bound to his reality by a small rope.
The Conditioned Elephant
And like Plato’s Cave, until we turn around, we will not see what is behind us and the world as it truly is.
And even if one does begin the walk along the path of development and internal growth, a myriad of distractions are thrown at us to either divert us, or lead us down a cul-de-sac.
Turn Back Sarah
And the keys to begin the journey of development and internal growth is to start, have an Open Mind, Curiosity and the Asking of Questions
