A message sent to me by a friend
I received this photo in an email from a friend. He said it had a simple and profound message about awakening.
I didn't understand what it mean at all.
I thought it was a joke at first.
But then I thought about it. For a man like that, in a very expensive suit and tie, the removal of his shoes and socks would mean a break with the paradigm of the successful, powerful business executive.
The picture of the shoes - above - was attached as well.
To go barefoot is to be vulnerable. The man in the photo would seem to be in control. I would assume he was wearing shoes! But he is not.
That breaking with the control seems to me a very important step in awareness.
That is my thought. Does anyone else who sees this picture think that? Something else?
