It's not that any given person is better than another, but to practice, deep diving gives birth to a more meaningful Life. Sure at times that can be painful, but to stay superficial eventually is painful also and I would guess painful in a more permanent way.
I'm 50 years old and I have never, never, done a single thing of which I am proud. To discover that at the age of 25 may well be acutely uncomfortable, to discover the same at 50, that is nothing short of devastating, and now I have to live with that. So... this can't go on, I'm going to have to do something, and although it is quite a leap to describe it as such, I have an opportunity. I do have something that I have to do, although it might be more correct to describe it as something that I can no longer continue to do nothing about.
