But just as some barriers serve to shield us, others tend to isolate us. They lock us up. Prejudice, anger, hatred, and injustice separate and divide us. Self-doubt, misunderstanding, fear, and mistrust fence us in.
There are barriers to happiness, to success, to peace, and to friendship. Hurdles to personal growth. Obstacles in our journey to fulfillment--all of them invisible to us. Which is why it is important to imagine a gate and to search for the key to it...
...or to get a ladder and scale it. Or to take a bulldozer to it…because there are some barriers that simply must come down.
What barriers will you take down?
“Love recognizes no barriers.
It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls
to arrive at it destination full of hope.”
