So that's the choice. And I make it every minute of every day. Sometimes I'm so close to the abyss it terrifies me, but when I think of my family and friends, I'm on the other side. And that's what we ALL have to do, every single day, often many times during the day. Whatever your vision of the choice is, that's what we have to do in one way or another.
The abyss is a very seductive, cunning lover. But it isn't the inner partner in life that is good for us. The true inner partner is quieter....it needs to be courted consciously. It speaks softly and it waits patiently
