the pole and the knot

It’s only in the mind, is my biggest learning. I guess because what I realized is that when we fear something or when we are stuck our situation is like of a person whose thumb is tied to a rope and this rope is further tied to a pole. what we do is to try and break that pole rather than untying our thumb which is a lot easier.
