Finding the core of the problem

We sit, we talk, we discuss, hard topics, challenging, driving the conversation forward by inches, creeping nearer to the truth, that hidden core that lies at the root of the problem. We skirt, we flirt, we sup on the beer, the nebulous protective barrier shielding our deepest thoughts is slowly stripped away, pierced as the veil between Worlds is pierced by the Shamanic trance. The naked form of the underlying self revealed in all its terrible glory, as fear dripping, terrorised, beset by childhood demons we reveal the tragic emotional scars of a life lived in subservience to paralysing, numbing greyness of the fear of failure, the fear of being wrong, the fear of being laughed at….

…but trust me, it gets better. The laughter quietens, the fear subsides. Live your dreams…
