Plato's allegory of the cave resonates. People are chained to the wall of a cave, with their backs to the entrance. They can't see the fire beyond the cave, but its light creates shadows that dance on the surface of the wall, and they mistake these shadows for reality.

Awakening is being unshackled from the cave, and stepping into the light. At first, the light is blinding, and it takes your eyes time to adjust. Eventually they do, and you see reality truly for the first time.

Being filled with joy, you want to share this truth with those still shackled in the cave. But when you return, your eyes have to readjust to the darkness. The prisoners mistake your apparent blindness for foolishness, and attack you for trying to set them free.

You can't unshackle yourself, but once you are free, it is an individual journey out of the cave.
