This subject lives in a state of separation. She has relegated herself to a condition of her own making, subjecting herself to a state of division that is painful and cumbersome. It is impossible to thrive in this state. Why did she choose a life of separation?
Perhaps, she is afraid of embracing her “whole” self. Perhaps, it is easier to bury those parts of herself that are difficult to explain and comprehend. Choosing separation is ultimately easier, though fraught with shadows, shackles and cages. Choosing union, a communion of the self, requires an inordinate amount of strength and courage.
This is a prelude to the end of shadows, shackles and cages. This is a prelude to the end of fear. This is a prelude to the beginning of a full and harmonious life. Here, the subject journeys to end this condition, to reunite and reclaim her whole, essential and beautiful nature.
