What is shame?
Most of us are not aware of what we are ashamed of. This is because our ego is doing its best to protect ourselves and, therefore itself. Emotional and intellectual walls are built to avoid the things that make us ashamed, vulnerable and enable us to surrender. Intellectual walls make us physically avoid or intellectually dismiss things that might challenge our ego.
This is usually consciously created by decisions – “this is me, and this is what I like”. Emotional walls are usually unconsciously created by experiences. The response of these walls are either to fight, flight or freeze. The fight response protects the ego by physical or verbal action commonly in an aggressive manner directed towards the experienced threat. The flight response saves the ego by avoiding the danger, either directly when it occurs or pre-emptively based on our previous experiences. The freeze response protects the ego by intellectually and emotionally shutting down in an apathetic manner.
All these walls will stop us from experiencing shame.
