Yes we close our eyes to truth to protect our selves. We also close our senses and numb it. Sometimes a betrayal very deep has caused the numbness and the blindness. But truth is incredibly stubborn and shameless and relentless. It eventually pierces the closed eyes and pricks the skin and enters the organs. Sooner or later, truth gets each one of us as it is meant to.
The butterfly cannot remain in a cocoon for too long. It will be forced to take its flight of death. Sooner or later, on its own. By it is own wings that want to flutter and create waves of vibrations and sip into the nectar of flowers that bloom all over. And then die happily satiated into its own grave of earth.
