You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.

You are here to create reality, not to continue status quo. You are here to grow in knowledge, philosophy, and then in truth. You are here to live, and not be afraid of life. You are here to use your brain to create thoughts and to conquer your ignorance. What happens when a person becomes enlightened? They conquer their ignorance. What does that mean? That means they develop their Spirit rather than their altered ego, their personality, their body. And they work everyday in embodiment of that (spirit) energy. They don’t ever really grow old. They have dynamic energy. They can create and their level of acceptance is extraordinary. New age is not new age; it is forever age. What it means is being greater than your body, greater than your prejudice and greater than your lack.
Whatever it is, if it doesn’t make you happy, walk away, give it away to someone else who wants it. Let it be THEIR next dream; let it flee from you. You’re emptying out your limitations when you do that. Then you have ROOM to grow, to allow magnificent things to fill the vacuum of those seemingly empty places. When you hold onto yesterday, when you hold onto dead and dying adventures, you have no room in your box for greatness.
Love yourself by listening to what you feel. Listen to how you feel about everything. And if the whole world disagrees with how you feel, love the world for exhibiting its own judgment and its own truth. Allow THEM to be without removing YOU from your decision based on your emotional body and how it feels. That is TRUE love of Self.
God is the simplicity of all things.
