Breaking Stones - an idiom with many meanings

“Breaking Stones”
Is not

In these times of turmoil, we pretend a lot and fake things as they attempt to cover up the realities around us. All this political correctness had blinded the truth from being spoken and worse than this silence is the lack of words being written. We are being bamboozled into deafness as the light has turned to darkness while the blinds are neatly folded by those who deceive us.
One can say that the world is going to end but until it does, it would be best to stay in a safe sanctuary zone where all is kept nice and neat. The road to caution is filled with hazards itself as this kind of thinking was the main reason for us being in this predicament, to begin with.
Choosing to remain silent, compliant and without reason, follow the media unwisely, we are now ignorant children of the world, believing in all we are told. On the other hand, life and all its adversities must not be ignored and addressed with the kind of zealot positive energy that we had in the past and leave no stone unturned to return our world back to the days of reality and common sense.
It is written somewhere that as you lay there in the safety of the stone, you are sure to stumble and trip over the very same rocks that protect you. Finding no shame in hiding your feelings and senses, one should believe that it's not real and try to find a way out of this bedrock of stones that keeps you from breathing.
Having been duly warned of the consequences, there are still those who put themselves to shame as they hide from the light and the truth as it is spoken. Their choice to disgrace themselves comes from the fear that festers inside them and gives them a weakness to lean on as another take advantage of this and take more control of the situation.
So when someone speaks out and asks a question, someone will stand up and say that they are speaking of offense and that it is wrong to question the motives. They try to shame this person back into silence as they have done to so many before.
There is only one hope, one way to break away from these stones that have been broken. There is only one thought to avoid being snared again and trapped into this web of lies that have been spoken.
What has become a sanctuary has become a prison of their minds. Just another stone to be broken and stumble on as you lay your mind to rest and accept the dialogue spoken as the gospel of the truth, when in fact, it is the devil’s words and nothing but lies.
So as disturbing as it may be, we need to find someone who's stones are not broken. Someone who can build an Army of men and women who will stand and become the cornerstone of a new foundation – the foundation of truth and freedom.
So that hope does not disappoint us, we search for the truth and those persons who can free us from this bedrock of ill will and imprisonment of our minds as we learn to reject what has become the cornerstone of deception and lies with spirits being broken.
Inside my heart, I can feel the need to unbind myself from the bonds of fear and let my spirit soar into the air so my work can be seen and my words can be spoken. That is the will of our God, this is the reason why we read the scriptures so the truth can be told and embolden those who believe in the parables written that all men shall be equal and all have the right to be free from fear and harm and deception from what is the reality around us.
