Everyone finds the world threatening, even hostile - because it is!
Before the beginning of Awakening, life is seen to be 'just like that'.
Because human nature is regarded as fundamentally animal-like.
After Awakening we start to sense something else - and not just in the Beauty, also in the Beast.
This heightens the gulf between that which is known to be beautiful and the ugliness.
But if one reaches the point of despair this does not help because our Inner Journey lies through experiencing the opposites in the world, not in turning away from them.
We cannot avoid the world, despite not liking its ways.
The only way through is to focus on the good, strive to right wrongs, offer kindness, love and compassion - and then, miraculously, previously hidden possibilities in every situation and soul are revealed!
