Imagine having a magic house that can be as small as you want or as big as you want. In this house, you have to live your whole life. Imagine that in this house you can do whatever you want. You can change from being sad to being happy simply by changing the room you’re in. You can have as many big rooms as you want or maybe the whole house is one big room. You have secret doors that might lead to secret chambers you don’t even know about. Or you might have big doors that lead to nowhere.
This house is unpredictable. You might enter into the “sad room” and the door close behind you and you’re stuck there, but since you can do whatever you want in it, you can imagine a different door for you to go out. There are traps all over this house, but since you are in control of it, you can get out of every trap with some effort by your side.
The problem with this house is that it rains trash and shit constantly. You can’t stop this shitty rain and you have to do a constant cleanup because the garbage piles up. Yes, it’s hard and exhausting, but if you don’t want to have a shitty life, you have to do it. But since you can do whatever you want in that house, you can do some kind of drain that will redirect the shit out. Since it will be a constant shitty rain, there will be some drops landing in your house and you have to clean them up, but I think it’s better to have a protection that keeps most of the trash out and clean some few drops compared to be constant full of shit and having to do a never-ending cleaning which would take your whole time.
In this house of yours, you might have imaginary visitors that will stay as long as you want. You might have a billionaire in there that gives you advices from time to time or you might have a gallery full of football fans that makes constant noise. You can have ten geniuses or you can have a criminal with you the whole time. It’s your decision who comes in and how long it stays. But keep in mind that whoever is in there it might go all around your house and open doors you didn’t know you have and who knows what might come out of there so for you not to be surprised, you should know as much as you can about your house.
Would you like to live in a house like that all your life? If you won’t, that’s too bad because you already do. It’s called your mind. What are you going to do now?
