This is something that I often feel, we are all surrounded by invisible walls, which are usually transparent to us and we just pass them without even noticing them. But to some people these walls are opaque and they get stuck. Take for example: exams. Most people pass them and the walls to them are transparent, but every year you see some people get stuck. Same thing applies for most things in life, I have met people who had it easy to get into medical school, easy to get a job and easy to get into relationship—transparent walls, they actually didn’t even feel any obstacle at all, yet some people get stuck in one of the hurdles and the wall becomes opaque. And paradoxically more intensely and obsessively the person hits at the “now opaque” wall, more he gets bounced back. Art of crossing the wall is to be sure enough, be prepared enough but yet not making it life or death matter. Walls remain opaque if you take them too easy or you make them an obsession. When you want something bad yet you are detached from the end consequence, that wall again becomes transparent. Another thing to learn from it is humility and understanding others. What you think is easy, may be a wall for someone else and vice versa. Respect the wall, respect diversity and you will learn the art to cross the "invisible" walls.
Did you ever encounter any wall which others thought was non-existent and how did you deal with it?
