~ EnClosure ~

Raining cats and dogs outside, not a sign of even a drizzle or chill of the wind - wondered where? Thats in the enClosure of a posh office. Very true! Life goes on as any other day, just some changes to protect oneself from the chill and shiver, may be a raincoat or an umbrella is the additional attire or an accessory to act as a protective shield. Once stepping into the enclosure, the shield is removed to get into the normal stream. Shield is to wield the danger and not to be worn forever. This reminds me the importance of using a shield at the right time and also knowing to drop it and keep it safe too. Also, the rain can touch only the surface of the shield and not the inside. So is it with life too if the right shield is used. In the inner zone of oneself, there is no need of any shield just like moving around in an office space but while stepping into a hard weather, its a must to use the shield. Again, Mother nature silently speaks in her expressions of a tormenting rain.

Merging Point, so let me start with words - another great post, and I am predicting there will be many more to come, and as JJ said you are soooo good at this.

I see shielding in two ways, shielding from danger, cold, that requires physical objects. But there is also personal shielding, where sometimes we create this invisible shield to seperate ourselves from nature, from others, from truth, and I think that is the shield one must watch out more. Like you said, in the inner zone of oneself, there is no need of any shield, but believe or not something that is hard to achieve.

Great post MP, loved it. Anna :)

Very awesome analogy... knowing when to drop it, and keep it safe, too... like this part best... Some of us will always live with that paradox... some of us never truly drop it, even if it appears we do... was thinking maybe not so good... but maybe it is neither bad nor good... just the way it is... for some of us...

Thanks for always tuning into my posts...

A wonderful metaphor here! People who wear their shields (and masks) without knowing when to put them down, split from themselves as much as they separate from being touched by the lives and thoughts of others!

Well said Lynda! Its really pathetic -- split personalities...
