“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can't be any large-scale revolution until there's a personal revolution, on an individual level. It's got to happen inside first.” [Jim Morrison]
Increasingly, it feels as though we are walking through our lives anesthetized, cut-off from our surroundings, with our faces buried in our smartphones, and earbuds drowning out all that surrounds us. I don't even remember when I chose to "put on a mask" and "trade in my sense for an act", but there's no doubt that's happened. Maybe it's time we all start that revolution inside each and every one of us!
