Protoplasm is the living substance of which the cells of an organism are built. It is the liquid foundation of life, the inner organism with thoughts and feelings. They move outward only to retreat inward again. Everything is pulsating, expanding and contracting; thus creating its own space through which it moves fluidly. Sometimes we move outwards and contract at the same time. This creates a conflict that prevents the liquids from moving. Fear and anxiety take hold, paralyzing us. To be able to move again, we must regain awareness of our mental and physical selves and return to the waking world.
