Today, it IS about self-preservation. I have had some long time to evaluate my existence. I work for a living. I have a three-year tenure here on GHMB. That's not very long, but I have learned more than what I have shared.
It is easy to listen to reason, but when the cause is personal, it gets dicey when one has to re-evaluate one's business in life. It is absolutely true that the answers are within you to bring you to a new level of life. You wiil know what you decipher within your own life.
Best hopes for your journey.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
