Excerpt from “Wisdom, achieving”

The plunge into the depths of oneself is a trial from which only a newly minted
individual can surface. The symbols of silver and gold suffice to emblazon this
attainment.

Guidance is required. Those who make it have likely suffered long for the hard-won
golden nuggets of new consciousness. Attributes required to combat bouts of
sluggishness are an effort coupled with a keen eye on various virtues. The
battlegrounds are where we’ve given way to inane indulgence or overwhelming
compensation. If we live a life victimizing ourselves for the very lack of developing
own potential we bring about a very unsatisfying life. This would be a life of various
illusions or compensatory behaviors in lieu of the life we thought we’d live.
