Walk down upon the nearest road by keeping your shoes in hand. Feel the roughness of the road, the pinching sensation of the hard ground brushing through your feet and the unusual feeling of walking without trying to hide your feet from the upcoming uncertainty.
This metaphor is applicable to life.
When we try to protect ourselves from everything that seems uncertain and risky or uncomfortable, then we live within a fence and all our ways become monotonous. Throw away all the protection. Jump over into an uncertain territory. And breathe life into every moment.
Your real life will start once you become completely naked, fully bare!
Become barefoot. Today! Now!
