Box

People always say "think outside the box"...but EVERYONE says that, making it be such an IN box thing to say. This is what I think about with boxes. I don't think we can get out of this box of thought that we are locked into. Nobody wants to get out anyways, so it's not like anyone has actually bothered to find a way out. So I've narrowed it down to this: Everyone is trapped in the box, like it or not, you're in the box and there isn't a thing you or anyone else can do about it. See? We are all trapped within the box of thought that we were born into. People from Canada might be locked into a different box of thought than people in the US, but regardless of where we come from, we are all in a box. No matter what, we are born into a box. It's not like when we are born, we are thinking. It's like we have to be taught how to think and we are stuck with that train (right track, wrong track, left track, train track.....don't ask) of though for the rest of our lives. So, you may ask, how do we get born outside the box? I know. I know how to get born outside the box. If any of you have ever paid any attention in church, you've heard the phrase "born again". So I think that when we ask Jesus into our hearts, we'll be outside the box. We are reborn, outside the box. In that case, a lot of people are outside the box. But I think I'll leave you with a question: Are we really outside the box, or just in another one?

I think outside of the sphere and inside the water free thoughts without boundries

says who? you? because the worst type of freedom is the fake kind. it's depressing how many people they are outside the box but they aren't. you can't just say that you're outside the box. you can't lie to me or yourself...don't try to.

Im not saying Im outside the box, the box is too big for me to know. Im outside my sphere, my mind, into the world beyond, into my heart, and I see my heart as an ocean full of waves of emotions. Im not lying I know where I am, what I think, how I feel, thanks.

I was never in The Box. No matter what you say, I'm too independent. Want an argument? Okay. You are inside The Box because you say you are in The Box, and I say I am not in The Box, therefore I am not. Not enough? The Box is an idea, so it doesn't really exist. HA!
