We feel a little off and overwhelmed sometimes. That is okay as long as it does not consume the soulsinside us. But it seems like we’re likely to develop the devils inside us to get the best of us sometimes. This makes us abandon who we truly are to believe who we are not. It’s the same like this house. It is a metaphor how you see this abandon house and yourself. I do believe this house used to be such a great house/ home that carried beautiful souls in it. But, as you can see in the picture below, it is abandoned. No one lives there anymore.

Italo said that the more enlightened our houses are, the more their walls ooze ghosts . It metaphorically means that the more you deny yourself, the true person of who you are, the ghost within you keeps unfolding. You do want people to see you as the perfect one that meet the standard of beauty in this cruel society. You keep doing things that are not ”you”. Little did you know, you just buried yourself inside your soul. You’re making your own ghosts.

I do believe there is ‘ghost’ in this old house that haunt people who have such connection with this house. By ‘ghost’ I mean memories. This old house carried sad and happy memories to the ex owners. They might feel the love, sorrow, broken feeling in this house. This house will haunt them down as they get back to see the house. The more they see that house, more ghosts they will catch, and will eventually consume them. That is why we need to let go the things in the past as we move on in this life. We do not bring the ‘ghost’ in our past to live with us in the present.
