The Gordian Knot is a legend of Phrygian Gordium associated with Alexander the Great. It is usually used as a metaphor for an intractable problem (disentangling an "impossible" knot) solved
easily by loophole or "thinking outside the box" ("cutting the Gordian knot").
It’s hard to go over our fears and be sincere with yourself.
Deep and hidden feelings, often are forgotten but still present in our pattern. So they affect our choices.
The solution is to achieve freedom from ourselves through the acceptance of who we are.
