The freedom of the water in the distance enclosed by the barrier that supposedly prevents us from jumping unchained. Notice the openings and height of the offending fence as it is easily broken down, but our minds have trained us that an enclosing barrier means that we can not go through or that we shouldn’t. A young elephant is metal chained to a post and an adult elephant is roped to that very same post. Why is that? The young will try everything until taught they can not veer away and then as an adult through trained thought give up the fight. My advice : Try a fresh perspective and break the barriers.
