An additional thought. When you're going through a process of releasing
boundaries and reaching certain realizations, it can also become easy to
disconnect yourself from the value of things in your life. That's when you
have to go to the next level and realize that you need to go beyond the
glamor of the realization, let your heart feel sentimentality, attend to
your daily yours, and even feel competitive or devilish.
