The Philosophy of the Obstacle 2

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

The Outer Obstacle and the Inner Obstacle go together, in the same way the object and its shadow go together.

Are you thinking of the Outer Obstacle as the object, and the Inner Obstacle as its shadow?


I’d reverse the metaphor. The Inner Obstacle is the object, and the Outer Obstacle is its shadow. The Outer Obstacle reveals the Inner Obstacle, in the same way an object is revealed by its shadow.

The real Obstacle is within yourself.”
