Confined to the Prison of Our Own Conditional Thinking

You see, we really are sealed up in the prison of our conditional thinking.  It is terribly difficult for us to get out, and even if someone batters down the door and shatters the bars, chances are we will stay in the prison anyway!  We seem always to want to hold out for something somehow, that little bit of something, and we do it with a passion and an anxiety that betrays its true source – the Old Adam that just does not want to lose control.
