To quench my intrigue I searched the deep meaning of this philosophical quote by Anthony De Mello, a spiritual healer. It states that we are like bears pacing in a cage. Even if the cage is removed, we keep pacing in the same timid limits. We are afraid to get out. And we think that the only way out is by endless striving and thinking. Through his book The Heart of the Enlightened, Anthony guide his readers with his short stories which touch on relationships, human nature, service, spirituality, and enlightenment.
