I relate to my surroundings with smell, taste, touch, sight and hearing. Everything else becomes metaphorical. Even though we know that the metaphorical is also energy, we confuse everything in our interaction with it. We think that we are not allowed to have a metaphorical mind which is not conceptualized by thinking. But it is our denial of that which make us feel bad about ourselves in relation to it. Because what we deny in us, we also deny in what exists as a reality in everything around us.
