I think this illustrates very well how we all live our lives and the layers in which we exist:
Blatantly ripped from glowlita’s journal (with permission of course)…
“For Office Use Only:
Who we are; who we wish we were; who we could have been.
We live in triplicate: white, pink, and canary yellow.”
I think this is why so many people are constantly living in a state of bewildered anxiety; they aren’t able to reconcile the differences between the three layers and are in constant battle with themselves to be one, while ignoring the other two. Only those who realize and put into action the understanding that each layer bleeds into the other while still retaining the minor differences which make each distinctly their own (but alone are only small parts of the greater whole), can achieve the existence for which they are striving.
