ei·ther /ēT͟Hər/

Adjective. One or the other of two.

or /ôr/

Conjunction. Used in correlation.

What most have been led to believe
is that there is only one of two ways
to go through a door. Simply
push or pull.
But what if
these two actions were
not so simple after all. Both
require the exertion of force: one
rooted in moving something further
away, the other by taking hold.

What if these were not the only two options.
What if there wasn't a sign posted
on the door, instructing you
on how to proceed.
Would you take the door
off the hinges. Break the glass.
Chop a hole through it. Or what
if you didn't have to exert
force
in any way. What if
you took
the exertion out of the equation. What if
the door wasn't a door after all.
What if
the door
was fear.
What if you stopped pushing
on it.
What if you stopped pulling
on it.
What kind of room would you
have access to, then. If you
could move towards
what you want,
through different
means.
