In today's fast paced life, we often find people lost in the pointless pursuit of success. Success may mean different things to different people though. In one's quest to glory, there are times when mind gets blacked out. Life may appear blurred when the whole purpose of life is questioned and one wonders if he is heading in the right direction or not. But it is the failure to realize one's true self, which is embedded deep within oneself, that hurts the person eventually. It is therefore pertinent to ask oneself - 'Who am I running away from? Myself?'

The outermost horse in blue represents the character mistaken to be self while the innermost one in white represents the core-self, which is very different in shade, texture and form. Knowing the ultimate truth is a gradual process of evolution as one must pass through different levels as represented by different colors to realize the 'true-self'. This state of self-transcendence is placed at the topmost level of Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Slow down, take a pause and know your true color before you realize it is too late.
