Ecclesiastes: Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do with all thy might; for there is no work, nor planning, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
In choosing security over growth, we outrage the soul, and the soul, outraged, manifests in symptoms- depression, anxiety disorders, envy and jealousy of others, dependencies, etc.
Better choose the dying that enlarges rather than the one that keeps us stuck.
The human psyche continues to ask us to grow, develop, explore, and be curious.
Choose growth or security- you can't have both.
When we are off the track, the psyche will always protest.
