Reaching deep into the center of existence can be enlightening and at times, it can be scary. Most people cannot handle the depths. Most people get distracted by the surface existence. There is nothing wrong with enjoying the surface life however; under the surface lies a whole other world for the living. Going under the surface is not for the faint of heart. You have to view pure evil and pure good; both can frighten the weak and the strong.
Once you venture into the deep, your whole outlook on life will change. What is important no longer is. I love what a friend of mine wrote me one time about that last sentence (What is important no longer is) … “That is what is true about my purpose. I have to dance on the surface mainly because, the purpose was crushed but remains in a way that holds me fast and demands I remain as well. So I dance on the rim as a way, too informed surface dweller.”
Wandering into the deep you will gain insight of your purpose and if you don’t then follow your purpose, it will drive you mad. You must follow your purpose, you just have to. It is hard to explain to the uninformed: the surface dwellers. Believe me my friend, life is more than the surface existence. ~b
