    I like a boat under sail. You can sail in most directions but not directly into the wind, but that direction changes. You mostly chart your course, but you are subject to the vagaries of land masses, shoals, wind, and seas. It helps if you're a better sailor than a worse one. You have to pay attention, not every minute, but mostly. You can't always drop anchor and rest. You are doing best when your sails are full and you are going somewhere. If you are doing well, you are going towards someplace, and at the same time, leaving someplace. Sometimes, others can see parts of your boat that you can't. And it's good to have a home port.

    As in "the people of the Way" of early Christianity, or "The Chela and the Path" by El Morya, some type of journey up the mountain of greater perspective or Jacob's ladder of divine awareness. Plato described it as a line: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analogy_of_the_divid...

    It's like the Beatles' song, "The Long and Winding Road" where the singer feels that the Oversoul has left him here after his soul separated and started out in unconsciousness to evolve consciousness in order to experience the Oversoul, God, which is who we are. He pleads to God not to leave him here suffering in pools of tears, but lead him to His door.
