Caged Animals


“That which looks like prison to you looks like safety to him” – Michael Singer

Jason joins Joey while donning a sparkling red cowboy hat, which sparks the conversation: would you wear such an item to an important business meeting?‘Of course not,’ comes Jason’s predictable reply, as the pair discuss the boundaries of our comfort zone – or, to use Michael Singer’s analogy, the cage that simultaneously provides security and prevents self-exploration.

Moving on to broader discussions of our internal monologue, Jason reveals how he has learned to internalise bad behaviours which would previously manifest themselves in the form of hurtful actions towards others. Now he prefers to express gratitude – even if this can be as difficult as learning an advanced song on the guitar.
