All paths lead you away from home.
The prodigal son went out into the world of things - looking out.
The prodigal son returned home to the world of no thing - look to see what is looking.
The truth is hidden in plain sight - in the seeing.
You think you are a thing that can find some thing called home. All the while you are seeking for home you do not seek it where you are - where else is there really??
Can you see anywhere else? Can you hear anywhere else? Can you smell anywhere else?
Seeing is here, hearing is here - here is where there is.
Any thing other than what there is here and now is just a thought that appears here and now.

How do you beat something that would mimic your every thought or feeling of ether the wanted desires or unwanted desires before the thought comes to mind? If thoughts and the nerves are fueled by light, then where or what would the shadow be? I mean, hell light maybe the fastest thing, but isn't a shadow just as immediate. Hell it would be almost as fast as the subconscious, to that of the conscious, but maybe a little slower...
Is the shadow a backward process of sorts, opposite of that of the subconscious, where thoughts that weren't thought up, or could of been thought up, or that it didn't want to think about. Or does get imprinted by thoughts thrown into the closet.
I like one quote that Batman said in one movie...
"We both looked into the abyss, but when the abyss looked back at us, you blinked".
