I believe what Hopper says is true; it has nothing to do with food. Or replace the word "food" with love, desires, purpose, money, etc.
It is all control and the perceived security that comes with it. The very thing we fear, our freedom being taken away, is being GIVEN away...by ourselves.
We need to take back our lives, our dreams, our purpose. To be and feel fulfilled. To matter in the world at large and around us. To create what we desire and not be victims anymore. To share who we are without fear of shame, judgment, humiliation or embarrassment. Lock arms with those around you that support and believe in you and in doing so you show support and believe in others.
Don't kid yourself, Jesus pissed off a lot of people due to his unorthodox ways. And one of the biggest ways he pissed people off is saying and living the following:
"DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU."
Because when it all boils down the only thing that is left is how we treat ourselves and the person next to us.
