The example shows how we can be pursued by fears or emotions, and can either continue to avoid them or face them. We are, in a real sense, pursued by what we have created with our thoughts, emotions, action and inaction. What we are avoiding might be sexual feelings; responsibility; expressing what we really feel in public; our fear of death; sense of failure; guilt; emotional pain; grief; but it might be our creativity; our love; our passionate response to living; our deepest wisdom and oneness with things. We can never escape from ourselves, so such feelings may pursue us through life unless we meet them.
