If you're not living on the edge you're just taking up space. For what better way to prove your worth than the compassion to keep others grounded; here on this plane - for just when they think you've finally gone over, you kindly stop them and say: "Careful now. You almost stepped right off. Until your eyes adjust its easy to miss after living so long in the dark. But what we find in the Light is our accountability - our own convictions to bear witness to and lead the lost."
The Truth of the Light reminds us that it was never the escape and we were never running from them. Until we can stand at the edge Aware of our Being Present we can never be aware in their presence. But to truly change the world we must affect the change precisely when and where what we see as the world is occuring. By the time one's self has perceived the moment, processed it, decided how it feels about it and reacted, the moment has passed - it is for this reason that we are always the victim of our experience... and unfortunately also the cause.
But if one can indeed see what I am saying, you must also see then, that for a brief moment I created was the reality of your experience.
This is our potential.
